Norma LP results

Hi guys
Had my Lp result today all normal incl no ologoclonal bands
So far I’ve had so many symptoms but normal neuro, normal mri and now normal lumbar puncture?
Does that all rule out Ms?

@krisp , the absence of oligoclonal banding in your cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on its own does not preclude MS.

But, together with the other test results, you are causing the Neuros a bit of a dilemma. You are becoming a bit of an enigma.

But, every test result would hopefully direct the Neuros towards a conclusion. A case of eliminate the probables and then investigate the possibles.

Hi thanks atumbler
I thought this I read something like 85% have bands, 95% have lesions and most have odd neuro exams so I have no idea what to do now lol
Is it almost definately not Ms though with all that? Particularly as they seem to be spinal issues the LP should show something?
The radiologist from the lumbar thoracic today noted two more disc bulges in thoracic area so that’s 5 between cervical and thoracic? Maybe that’s causing a lot of it?

Well I was feeling great until I woke up and within half hour one side of my face is burning more so cheek and nose down to my jaw
Any idea what this is? It’s like a burning stinging
I’m fed up of this!
