Spinal Tap Compared to Cortisone Injection in Spine?

As some of you know, I'm growing increasingly nervous about a spinal tap I'll be having a week from Friday. I have had many cortisone injections into my back for a herniated disk. Could someone who has experienced both talk about the similarities and differences? I am not needle phobic, but I am concerned about possible after effects of the ST/LP. I have never had a problem with regular injections, though.

Sudden heating

Dr. Zamboni has shown by experiment that pwMS have slow adjustment to changes in posture. I think that is also evident with sudden changes in temperature such as occur when you enter a hot bath or shower. The same effect, I believe, is apparent when someone stops running or cycling, due to the sudden loss of skin evaporation when the wind stops.

Spinal Tap now v. MRI in 6 mos.
