Myelogram headache

Hello everyone!

I had a myelogram done yesterday morning and I still have a headache. Does anyone know how long I should expect this to last?

I do not have any results yet, I am really curious. THe radiologist did tell me that from her first glance that there was nothing wrong with my back! Yes, you read it correctly, nothing wrong with my back!!!!!!!! I told her to keep on reading because my mri's say that I have 6 herniated discs throuhgout my spine, something must be wrong.

Then she mentioned the muscular disease thing. I am going crazy with curiosity. I will know next monday at my appointment with my Neuorsurgeon. Long time to wait!

I was told worst case senario was a week, although I never heard of anyone having a Myleo headache for that long. It was much worse when they used oil based dye. Good lord. I thought the top of my head was coming off. I hope your's is gone soon. They stink.
