spinal tap

Posted By Sherry on August 21, 1998 at 08:58:19:







I recently had an MRI of the brain done,with alot of bloodwork and a B12 urine
test. Some of my bloodwork came back abnormal and there was alot
of protein...187. By the way I,m 42/F.No urinary infection.I have alot
of pain in my back and sternum,and weakness in the legs.My question is
the neurologist wants to do a spinal tap and I was wondering what all
they can tell from this? He mentioned multiple myeloma as a possiblity,
Will this test show this? I have ask questions here before and I really
appreciate this forum! I cant find any info about it on the net.
                                    Thanks Sherry : )
