Boy, it sounds like you are in the same boat as I am. I am way too scared to get a spinal tap. When I was on the IV rocephin last year, I would get these awful migraines that would land me in the ER, one time the ER doctor tried saying that I should let him give me a spinal, I was so drugged up from the meds to get rid of the migraine, but when I heard him say that ...I was like no way are you giving me one.
I have heard of someone talking about
the IV Immunoglobulin but don't know much about
it. I went to the doctor today she did a blood test, Lyme Tither and started me on Cefuroxime Axetil?
So what is your doctors next step in finding out if it is really MS or something else???
Work is really hard, I keep pushing and pushing to keep working. I fear that I may have to come out soon on short term, but I'm afraid if I do that then they will see that they don't need me and I'll be out of a job, ya know?
