My LP results took three weeks and then they did more blood work after to check for diseases other than MS and that took another three weeks.

My LP tests were done in about 2.5 weeks.  I don't think even Mayo could take months to complete the testing.  Be patient, but don't let it drag on and on.

In the meantime, hang out here and learn more about MS.  Our health pages make great reading material and knowledge is power!  

be well,
