post discogram question

my pain is pretty severe. do the healthy disks that they inject with dye cause pain afterwards or do the bad disks just cause pain. i'm in such bad pain, i was wondering is the healthy disks were causing pain also. if i'm in such bad pain, does that mean that one or more of the disk were painful before the discogram. thanks, jason

Re: post discogram question

just the bad ones cause pain from my experience. yeah, the pain from the discogram is bad and will last a while, but aren't you glad it is over?

Re: post discogram question

if your doc did a provacative discogram where they they measure the pressures and pain relevant at the different pressurized levels, then yes, even the good discs could hurt. you are lucky it was not a painful test, for some like myself, it was the mast excrutiating pain imaginable. I was lieterally screaming and balling when they were at the bad disc. I was very sore for several days afterwards, too.
