hi dose anyone know if a Lumbar puncture could be done if i have bad osteoperosis ? i have had many disc ruptures in past. just had ct brain scan done but dont expect that to show anything as even the tech said an mri would be the test to do to show MS

You can always ask. Ask for fluoroscopy so they can see a spot and not just poke and guess.

You need that MRI.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

eyes  Ha went to GP today waited (wasted )  an Hour then Rushed thru
she said lets check everything else Before making Nurologist appt just in case  ?
that way you won't wast 6months Waiting for appointment  so she's now doing a heart check for the Dizzyness said it can be
postural hypotension, But as i Tried to tell her it isnt only when i get up it can be anytime
and as i expected the Brain CT was fine. i think checking all these other causes is wasting time and Money you'd think you'd
make the Nurologist appointment then if you wanted do the other tests while waiting ? ?
 so I have made an appointment with a new GP a friend told me about see if i can get some action
