Hi, I’m wondering if anyone could give me advice following my lumbar puncture?
I had a lumbar puncture a few weeks ago and today I received an appointment letter to go see my neurologist in May. I have problems with my discs but because I also have clonus in my left ankle my neurologist wanted more tests done to work out what was causing it.
I’ve had various other tests done - MRIs of brain and spine and a visually evoked potentials test. Following these my neurologist’s secretary wrote to my GP and copied the letter to me saying that the MRIs didn’t show anything new and the VEP was clear. I’m now worried that because I’ve been sent an appointment letter instead of a letter to my GP that this means something has shown up on my LP test. Does anyone know if this is normal or if it had been clear would I have just received a generic letter like before? I would appreciate any responses as May seems like such a long time away wondering if this is normal.
