I have a lumbar puncture sched for this Monday. I had a few questions for those who have had this done already.
1) What is the doc looking for exactly?
2) Can the results lead to other diagnosis?
3) Does it hurt? (Silly question)
4) Anything I should know/be prepared for?
I have a ton of symptoms. Some are typical of MS and some are way out in left field. I had an anomoly on my brain MRI. No one has used the word lesion yet. Apparently it looks unusual for a lesion so I guess they are not willing to call it that yet. My upper spine MRI was clean.
