Please can you tell me if this test is very painful and what can one do to make it less so, if this is the case.
Thanks for any info.

Well first off , they also say the definition of a "painless" test is one you are performing on someone else. Wtth that said most of my patients tolerate this simple procedure rather well.

Thanks for your reply to my question.
Do you often carry out this test on patients?
Is it not possible to take something that will make it less painful / uncomfortable?

I dont think it requires cervical block ( a local novacaine injections0 but you could request that to try and help . It is a 5 second procedure.
