i was very sick a few winters ago, and had to have a spinal tap done. i dont mind needles so i didnt think it would be a big deal, only they had the er doc do it instead of the anesthesiologist so he was really just digging around my back with a roofing nail sized needle. i dont remember the exact pain, just that it hurt. when it was finally done by the anesthesiologist, i barely felt anything more than a pinch. does an epifural feel like anything close to that for those of you that have had both?
