Low Spinal Fluid Pressure?

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.

Hi,
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!
