NCS side effects

Is swelling and blisters can be a side-effect after NCS?
I did NCS of both lower limbs to my 68 y/o woman lasts Wednesday, possibly poly neuropathy. She didn't complain of any untowards pain during the test. 
Today, Saturday the patient came back and she had right foot swelling and blisters. Are these a side effects of NCS?
Blisters location are not on the stimulation site.

Thank You, and stay safe
