Lumbar puncture

Hi,

I saw a neurologist today, who wants me to have a lumbar puncture. He mentioned something about imflamation - but not sure what…?(these appointments take so long coming then the mind goes blank when I’m in there). If I have MS would this show inflamation in the spinal fluid?

Am having mine tomarrow A tip av learnt keep on their backs at neuro things go a lot quicker then

they’ll be looking for oligoclonal bands. Most of MSers do have them, it’s an additional confirmation of the diagnosis (apart from MRI)
