Not posted for a while as not much to say but have been reading posts.
I got a call today from Addenbrooks to book me in for my LP and VEP for 27th June.
Thankfully my ex is taking me as I don't drive. He needs to be in work for his shift that starts at 3pm and have been told I should be away by about 1pm so hopefully he will get to work on time. I hate depending on others, especially the ex, but have little choice and I am not about to mess about when it comes to my health. Plus he owes me big time for the stress he has put me through with our on-going divorce etc. Anyway, I was wondering if they will let me go as soon as the LP is done as I have read that you need to lie flat for at least an hour after. I won't have time for that afterwards because time is short on that day.
I also suffer horrendous migraine and am a little worried about it.
I don't usually drink caffeinated coffee or fizzy drinks because they can trigger migraine.
Is there anything else I can do to help myself? I also have the kids dinner to get when I get home afterwards and normal household running stuff.
I guess I could get the kids to make themselves a sandwhich just for one day. It won't harm them.
Am not worried about the LP but am worried about the after effects.
The VEP is just fashing lights and stuff, right?
Have never had these tests before.
I have a follow-up appt to see my neuro for 25th June as she said I should have had the LP and VEP done by then but I am actually having them done two days after the follow-up.
Should I re-book the follow-up for after the LP/VEP?
I have had an MRI which showed one lesion.
