SPEP/IPEP- Now I'm really scared!!!!

I had 9 tubes of blood taken today, the above blood test was one of 6 different ones, when I looked this up, its to test for all kinds of stuff like, Leukemia, Lupus, Multiple Myeloma, etc..  Now I'm really scared.  If these come back normal she wants to do a LP.  Anyone know anything about this specific test?  Thanks

Jenny,

Its good to have all the blood test done to rule out disorders.

A LP is a lumbar puncture or spinal tap.Done by the right DR they are relatively painless.They are checking the spinal fluids .The fluid can rule out many disorders.

Hi Jenny.  
I know it has been YEARS since your post.  However, I have just found it.  I am having the same tests ordered and I wanted to see if you were still active on this forum.  I wondered if you could give me any insight on what to expect from these tests, and what you found out.

Thanks!
