If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Glad to hear things went great. I had my one and only spinal tap in January, and along with the MRIs, was diagnosed with MS. I am fine. The neurosurgeon was unable to get any fluid out so they sent me down to XRAY where a technician was successful in extracting the fluid. They kept me still for approx 2 hours after, and my wife drove me home. I drank many fluids, and did not do any excessive lifting and such, and overall, the whole event was not as bad as I expected. I did incur some headaches afetr I coughed, either due to the cold, smoking or both, but they lasted only for a sec., and only for 2 days. Nothing else to report.
