I had my lumbar puncture yesterday,before i had it the doc explained that it should be between 14 and 20,over 20 is high and under 14 would be low. Mine was 12 so would this be classed as normal or not?? It was thought i was having high pressure headaches but bviously now i know im not but could it be low presure headaches? The headache i got after the lumbar was exactly the same sort of headache i get anyway,not anything different or more painful.
My problems started after a knock to the head,nothing serious but was hard,could it be possibble for this to cause low pressure?
ALSO.. WHAT OTHER THINGS DO THEY TEST FOR WHEN THEY SEND THE FLUID OF??? THANKS X
