JACUSTOMER-c1jezntz- :

do you have any knowledge of csf leaks

healthydoc :

yes.

healthydoc :

Any tear or hole in the membrane that surrounds the brain and spinal cord (dura) can allow the fluid that surrounds those organs to leak.


This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). When it leaks out, the pressure around the brain and spinal cord drops.

JACUSTOMER-c1jezntz- :

you reading it.iv read those exact words.

healthydoc :

Why do you have CSF leak?

healthydoc :

Head injury?

healthydoc :

what symptoms you have?

Do you have any intracranial pressure?

JACUSTOMER-c1jezntz- :

healthydoc :

Yes. LP ia a procedure ordered to collect and look at the fluid.

healthydoc :

Before rating the service can you please mention did you have LP or not.

healthydoc :

Spinal tap and LP are the same test.

JACUSTOMER-c1jezntz- :

your suppossed to be asking me why do you feel you have a csf leak,what are your symptoms, i know lp is same as spinal tap

healthydoc :

The main risk of LP is when there is a increased pressure or swelling in the brain before the procedure, a lumbar puncture can cause fluctuations in the CSF fluid levels, resulting in brain herniation.

healthydoc :

I did ask you before what are your symptoms?

healthydoc :

Why did you have LP?

JACUSTOMER-c1jezntz- :

yeah i know, what your doing is reading the information, on google.and saying that.not being rude i need very proffessional hands and teaching
