Thank you so much for your advice! It's funny you should say that about maybe I never had carpal tunnel problems at all, because in 1997 when I had an EMG for it, it barely showed any problem at all. I will have to say, however, that my neurosurgeon in Nashville did the "wrist tap" and I experienced some numbness in my fingers, which is typical for CPS. I've read about "double crush syndrome", have you? It's where the nerve can be pinched up high due to cervical problems, and also lower due to carpal tunnel or other problems.

My sister who has had 3 ACDF surguries told me that at her last one, she was afraid of the myelogram again so the dr. said "no problem" and performed it after she was under anesthesia. She never knew the difference. Sounds like a plan to me, and one I will beg for if this is my fate. Ask about it!

Keep in touch with your situation, also. Thanks again for responding.
