Results Letter - Interpretation Needed

Postby QoS » Sat Mar 01, 2014 5:43 am

First neuro issue was 20 years ago, admitted urgently to A&E and put down to viral meningitis.

4 years ago I collapsed with vision loss, vomiting and was rushed to A&E, LP revealed high pressure and CSF was drained to assist. Visited Neuro and spent time on CSF inhibitors before being told itwas migraine related.

Last year has been bad, numbness, vision issues, nerve pain, fatigue etc. Tested low for B12 and was being injected, little improvement. Referred to neuro for scans. Scans revealed marks on brain, electrical tests ruled out neuropathy. Neurorevealed that there were marks 4 years ago, as well as blood hormone markers?

Had another LP, I know my CSF level is above standard, but it's been much higher before. In order to be in control of my appointment with the neuro can anyone translate the bio tests on the CSF?

"Clear and colourless fluid was drained with an opening pressure of 26cm of water. CSF protein was 246, CSF glucose was 2.8. Microscopy revealed 0 white cells and 0 red cells with no growth."

Thanks in advance.
