I have edited this post....my EEG was actually NORMAL, but I mistakenly listed abnormal....also, I got part of my LP report--one of the diagnoses was: lymphocytes (non-malignant) and monocytes present. Also, rare epithelial cells. Does anyone know what this means? (I'm just too impatient to wait until Monday for my neurologist)
Are evoked potentials a necessary part of MS testing? I am about to be diagnosed with MS and I don't think I have had these tests. I have had the following tests:
MRI - Normal
NCS - Abnormal
EMG - Abnormal
VNG - Abnormal
Spinal Tap - partial results--see above.
Thanks everyone for all of your help and support.

No, they are not necessary -- but many of your abnormal results above don't point to a disorder of the central nervous system, but more something going on with your peripheral nervous system.
