I wonder how many people, especially Canadians, never got full testing.

Me neither.

I remember my neurologist said that lumbar p produced false positives/negatives on a very regular basis - so as to be useless in diagnosis. He was an 8 year veteran of the local MS clinic so I thought he had a legit reason for thinking this.
