"Be yourself. An original is always worth more than a copy."
I know that state of mixed emotion well from my own experience. As your friend, I feel both relieved and frustrated to hear this news. I so want you to find some answers and relief, and I do understand that at a certain point even bad news is …news, and a place to move forward from. Please don’t be sorry or feel guilty for being upset over this; I think many of us have been there.
There is something obviously wrong. You do have a dx of ON, so that does explain part of it. That is something concrete and objective (not solely sensory sensations a doc can’t “see”) for the docs to work with. I know you are really discouraged, but I hope you will follow up with your eye doc and a new neuro anyhow at some point.
Please take good care of yourself in the midst of this, and know we are here for you.
I'm very excited for you that your LP was normal. But I know what frustration you are going through. Hey, its been 7 years with my symptoms, I never had an LP, but everything is normal. Maybe we just have hypersensitive nervous systems, who knows. Anyway, CONGRATS!!!
Take care, Jen

Welcome to the board. My back also hurt for several days after my spinal tap. You can just let your doctor know. You got some good advice from Uppitycats as to some management hints.
I know you maybe have a lot going on but in the future, please just post your question once and then try to be patient for a response. I understand that you maybe scared and in pain but there is limited space on boards like this and we just don't have room for multiple posts on the same question. Please check out the rules to our board.
Please feel free to ask questions and express concerns and such but just make one post then try to wait a bit for responses.
Here is a link to our rules. Thanks for taking a look and again welcome.
Love and prayers,
