    Re: what is a milogram test

    Hi
    I think the word is 'myelogram', or 'Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies' - these are two different kinds of tests that people often have to diagnose neck and disc/nerve problems. If you do a search with these words, either here or on the internet in general, you will find articles and posts that you can read that explain more.

    Both of these tests involve needles, so there is pain from that, but it's not the worst pain I've ever had. The myelogram involves injecting fluid into the spinal cord, and some people here have described 'after effect' discomfort from that.

    Do you know which test you are having?

    Bob
