I'm in the "testing" phase of diagnosis. I just had LP today and my spinal fluid pressure was 12 at the start and 8 at the end. Dr said I had low pressure. He also told me what causes it: previous LP, ruptured vertebral disk, a hole in the sinus' etc. Well I have none of those and no spinal head ache, so..... why would I have low CSF? Is this r/t MS? I will get results back next week to see if I have MS but I am curious now... thanks if anyone can help.
I had low CSF pressure as well. The Dr. even had to do it twice!!!! Ouch!!!!
I didn't get a headache till 2 days after. I don't know what in the world would cause the low pressure. I hope someone else does!
