Beth, no i do not know what lab or test he ordered. i do know he is not totally against lyme tho. i still do not know what lyme disease test he ordered from my blood work tho. and the lab techs didn't know either when i asked. i even asked if it was the WB or ELISA. and they said no. so i am still in the dark there.
i did ask to be put to sleep for the test. and was told no they needed me awake to do it. but the staff at my hospital do work well with you. this part of it wasn't to bad.
Beth when you had your LP. did you have extreme pain run from your hip to your toes? they told me i could feel something akin to a charil horse in my legs. but i only had it in my left leg and it felt as tho they was pulling my muscle out.
i am still going thro what feels as tho i have a knife in my lower back right above my hip. how long should this go on for?
Jen, this is a tuff test to have. if you can do something different to ease your mind about
MS, i would look into it before doing a LP. but if you well you need this done take some good meds first if they will let you. i had to go over everything i take the day b4 and they was going to have me slip my celebrex, but after i explained to them i have been on it for a yr, and that i really needed it they let me take it long as it was 12 hrs before hand.
still looking for answers.
