Post Possible MS

For years I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic Fatigue, spine problems etc etc. Since then a have had a few accidents, one injured my neck, one had minor head trauma and the last herinated two disks in my lower back. I was contributing my eye problems, speech problems and left leg and hand problems to these injuries. Last month my doctor finally did an MRI of my brain and now they say I have probably been misdiagnosed. Do not have fibro but rather MS due to multiple spots in my brain and that these areas are around nerves and around spinal cord. I have read about lumbar punctures but here is my question. I just had a spinal fusion L4/L5 & L5/S1 levels. Can they still do a lumbar puncture?

Hello BrightIs7331,

I really don't know if a lumbar puncture can be done or not. You should defintely discuss this with your Physician.
