apinal tap and root of nerve hit
I had a spinal tap today and just before or at complete insertion the doctor apparently hit the root of a nerve(s). OH MY GOD! — First time ever that I have screamed involuntarily. A quick tearing ubbelievable pain from site and down left leg — felt like leg being violently ripped apart from the inside – YEOW! ( I am 64 and have experienced considerable pain b/4, but nothing like this.)Should I have any concerns? — other than avoiding future spinal taps. Was it just a rare undamaging experience? I feel ok now, 6 hours later — just usual soreness. Thank you very much.
