Anyone else suffer intense shoulder/scapular pain during c-spine myelogram?

Started by upanddown on 12/29/2012 10:30am

I just had a c-spine myelogram w/CT. I was wondering it anyone else suffered from intense pain between the shoulder-blades during the procedure? I was not expecting it as it was very painful. It was short lived, I'm thankful for that but I had no idea it was going to be so intense.
If anyone has experienced similar pain, please post what happened and what your diagnosis was.

Had very intense pain across my shoulder blades, neck and into my jaw during my c-spine myelogram. It lasted maybe a few minutes although might have been shorter than that but the pain made it feel longer. Resolved completely after about 5 minutes but left me nauseated and heady feeling. After looking on google this was the only mention of it so apparently this response is rare. I had very little issues with the initial injection itself. Diagnosis is 6 months post 2 artificial disc replacement at C4-6.
