Brief recap... I was injured at work in 2013. I've had 2 neck surgeries & left rotator cuff surgery as a result of my work injury. I've been in pain management for about a year now.
I am having a lot of pain above & below where my fusion is. I also am getting a lot of nerve pain back there & it goes down my left arm. I've been told that I have issues with my ulnar nerve in my left elbow too. (According to EMG).
My ortho doctor, who did my shoulder surgery, suggested that I go get a second opinion on my neck.
This new doctor ordered me a CT/Myelogram, which is scheduled for tomorrow morning (Dec 3).
My question is, how common is it to get a bad headache after this test? I am really concerned because I suffer from bad headaches as it is. The nurse from the hospital called me & did my pre registration. She told me to drink a lot of water today, which I have been doing.
