lp test

Hello my name is Renee,,i have been having test after test and still no results. I'm hoping someone can help me with my LP test results.What brought me to the Dr, was my toes on my left side began to move on their own one night and haven't stopped yet.This started in Feb. they just fann out twitch quiver and all four toes go down big toe goes up..Doesnt brother me when i walk or sleep. Did begin to  hurt some but i'm taking Gabapentin now. I do have other problems dizzy,off balance some numbness in finger tips.This is all on the left side from my toes to past my knee fills  funny.       It s says My CSF CONTAINS >5 well defined gamma restriction bands that are also present in the corresponding serum sample,but some bands in the CSF are more prominent.  This pattern is associated with Guillain Barre's ,peripheral neuropathy or increased permeabilityof the blood -brain secondary to infection or truma.........IGG Synthesis rate -2.0   IGG serum  823....Albumin,serum   4.1   .....IGG index,csf    0.50 red blood count 24h  also some rare white blood cells present,,,thank you

Went to see my Nerurologist today.Said MS wasn't a factor  so, thats good!!! Mention gamma bands found in the LP looking at Guillian Barre syndrom (syndrome).Sending me for more test,because everything is happening on my left side. Checking for mini strokes but the brain MRI said no strokes, going to have a MRI on back of neck and middle back. Also a test checking for clogged  arteries in neck. The Dr. is sending me to Vanderbilt Medical Cinic for movement disorders.
