RE-expert opinon needed


http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Headaches-/Expert-Opinion-Needed/show/1287525

In reference to my earlier post.

I did not mean spinal leak from the LP procedure. My headaches started BEFORE this test. This test was done to rule out chronic meningitious.

I meant the earlier questions, based on"""""""

since my diagnostic LP took 1 hour 20 mins to fill 13cc's

does this length of time, and history suggest a possible leak BEFORE the LP, as in I was leaking before this procedure, and thats why the test took soo long.

Dear Friend,
If you want me to classify it on percentage basis, then i would say 98% no and 2 % yes.
I doubt you would fall in that 2 % category as there are other symptoms like pain / bulging / redness / persistent headache which would b e present.
Regards

This answer is no good.

Here answer this: I think I made it confusing.

If you had a patient with a new history of sudden persistant headaches and your preformed a LP on him, and it took 1 hour 20 mins to drain 4 vials or 13cc's of fluid, would you consider that possibility of low pressure headache or no?

Please answer, as the previous answer did not help me.
