Thanks for your reply! The test isn't scheduled yet, I'm still doing the physical therapy part. But the doctor's office mentioned this morning that this is the direction I'm headed in. I'm hopeful the fact that I'm taking an antianxiety med (Lexapro) may help me for this test, since I wasn't taking it 4 years ago when I had the first myelogram--and was a basket case. I hope they don't make me stop taking it for the test! Thanks for your reponse.
