Hello All :H I am new to this forum. From what I have read so far has helped me tremedously to make the decision to have the 2 tests performed and then on to the surgery. I have had migraines, neck, back pain since I was 15 I am now 38. I am ready to live the rest of my life pain free!
I am little apprehensive about the test but I know they have to be done so we know exactly what to do. I have issues with C6 and L2,3,4,5 & sacrum. At the moment we are addressing the C6. The lumbar area is being done just to see what the issues are and go from there.
These tests can't be as painful as the pain I have in my neck down my shoulder, biscep, forearm, wrist, fingers. I am so ready.
For my tests I have to spend the night in the hospital first I get the myelogram done by my doctor then the following morning I get release and go to an imaging center to get the discogram. I really wish my doctor would do both. Has anyone else had to spend the nigt for these tests and has anyone had them both done in 2 days. If so how was the pain level afterward?
