A while ago I posted about an unusual scan. The radiologist was asked to scan my brain and cervical spine. After the scan they informed me that they decided to scan my full spinal cord. They informed me I should not drive until my next appointment (December) I have been trying in vain to get some answers but unfortunately have been unable to contact my neurologist. My GP has also been unable to get a straight answer why.
Before this I was diagnosed with CIS I had been left with no information and had a fair few big symptoms I managed to get intouch with an MS nurse who asked for the scan unfortunately she has been on leave since then
Anyway I got a call from the hospital asking for me to attend an appointment for a lumber puncture ASAP.
So 2 questions. Firstly, I know it’s impossible to guess what’s going on in a neurologists mind but would you say there is a good chance they saw something fairly significant on the scan?
secondly, how bad is a lumber puncture? I know we all experience pain differently but I am quite worried as I am a wimp. I have had epidurals and facet joint injections before would you say this is a similar pain level (if anyone else has had these)
Thank you for listening and I hope we all have the answers we are searching for soon.
