I have been having pain in my neck and my right arm since January 2010. After finally seeing Dr, after Dr, after Dr. to get this problem taken care of. I finally found a spine Dr. who knew his stuff and went right into action.

Yesterday I went into the hospital to have a CT mylograme of c-spine. This is when they give you a spinal tap and draw off some fluid, then inject the spine with dye. They flip me upside down to get the dye up and down the spinal canal. Then they take cat scan pictures and your done. You have to wait at the hospital for 2-4 hours after the procedures A: to make sure you dont' get a headache and B: to keep you from getting a headache. After this procedure your suppose to lay flat to keep from getting a headache.

I'll find out Tuesday what finally happens to my neck/arm/back. Will it be surgery, or what????
