I had a spinal tap to rule out Lyme and Diagnose MS. It came back negative for Lyme dut I had a few O'bands can't say the whole name sorry. So they said all my positive Lyme tests from blood were wrong and it was definitly MS. I did believe them for awhile I tried Avonex and Steroids it made me worse.
I went and saw an LLMD over 3000 miles away and was diagnosed with Nuerological Lyme and treated with antibiotics and got better all lesions in my brain healed I felt good for 3 years, had a healythy baby and after stopping antibiotics it all came back. My LLmd said my Nueroloigists did not even order the right tests for Lyme with my spinal tap they didn't want to find it.
Make sure to take good care of yourself after the procedure stay flat on your back and let someone take care of you otherwise you can get the worst headache.
