What tiny needle of the initial freezing My2G? I got a big needle and no morphine or sedation of any kind. They didn't even offer and at that point in time they were trying to rule out a stroke (why that would show up in spinal fluid and not the CAT scan is beyond me) and meningitis. I was admitted not knowing who I was, where I was, couldn't talk, headach, vomiting, and numbness in both my hands. Most of my ER stay is a blank but I remember the spinal and also remember I was still confused and scared out of my mind. I would say that I have a normal pain tolerance and it was the worst thing I ever experienced, you Dash and Moxie are the only people I know that describe it as uncomfortable or not bad. My sister has one of the highest pain tolerance of anyone I know and she says if it's anything like getting a shot in your spine she wants nothing to do with it. They actually brought 2 extra nurses into the roon to hold me down before they even started.
