Last week I was asking you all for advice based on my health history, and you thought that I should have a myelogram and an EMG and I agreed.
However, my GP talked with the pain clinic doc who wants me to see him for a facet injection next week and someone else for an EMG later on. Questions:
1) Shouldn't I have the EMG first to see if the facet injection is a good idea?
2) Doesn't the pain clinic doctor have a conflict of interest in recommending the facet injection since he gives it?
3) Who would likely administer the myelogram when they do allow it? I guess I can have one if the facet injection(s) don't work.
4) Has anyone had success with the facet injections? My doctor told me that these can even "fix" the pain. Really? I'll take ten then.
Sorry that I have a bad attitude. Nothing has worked yet, so the thought of "more pain and no gain" kind of stinks!
Any thoughts on this? I sure appreciate it!
