Saw my neurosurgeon yesterday. The 3 epidural steroid injections I had did not help at all. Now I am scheduled Monday for a myelogram to hopefully find the nerves causing the problem. He seems to think the L5 nerve is the problem.
I have read several things about a myelogram and have to say I am very nervous. I have headaches quite often and the thought of having a spinal headache after this procedure is very scary. I plan to stick to the bed for the 24 hours except to go to the bathroom because I sure don't want the spinal headache. I certainly hope after going through this they can find what is causing my problems.
I hope they will be able to give me something to calm me down before the procedure because I know I'm going to be a nervous wreck! If anyone has had a myelogram and has any other suggestions to help avoid the spinal headache , please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have for me.
