Re: myelogram needle damaged nerve
Just read your horrible experience ! I had a mylegram way back in 1978 and they too were awful. I was in the hospital with severe back pain. When they did the test it was without any seditives either. I knew I was in trouble when my left leg started to slowly lift up and it felt like a big puppet string was pulling it. My doctor said it was just the herniated disc that caused it which I know was the wrong answer.I was so upset by it all I just stopped going to any doctor for about 20 years. I still have pain there,especially if I do too much. It goes down my leg like sciatica. Fortunately it isn't as bad as yours. Right now I do have neuropathy in both feet and the right hand. The neurologist says it is definately not from that procedure. Have you seen a neurologist? It might be helpful along with your orthodedic guy? Good Luck and better health!
