I am planning on having the test done it hasn’t been scheduled yet. I have so many problems with pain   Radiating through all my whole back and rib cage along with numbness in the arms hands and feet. I went through this with  The baclofen pump didn’t do anything for me, I don’t want to make the same mistake. I have a terrible problem with body heaviness.  Every doctor that I’ve seen states they are surprised that I’m not a quadriplegic. I’d really appreciate your input, it’s very hard in painfill,  to sit at the computer even for a few minutes. It’s gotten to the point that I’m hunching over and cannot stand up straight.
