Opening Pressures with LP's?

Postby DrDiana » Sat Aug 20, 2011 11:43 pm

Hello, my friends,

Many of us have lumbar punctures. If you know what any of your opening pressures were, can you please shoot it to me?

I have an idea!

Thanks so much,

:)

I'll check to see if I have mine in my records. I definitely had an LP. :!:

At the time of my diagnosis my neurologists thought that LPs were of limited value due to high false neg/pos. Needless to say I did not have one. Let's just say I found a plausible reason not to have one.

Your docs were right, PointsNorth, but many folks had them anyway to look for the ol. bands. Some people know their opening pressures, some do not, but I'm on the look out for those who do!
Thanks so much,
