How Many Spinal Taps Can You Get Before It Causes Bodily Injury

Answer

Nicollejoe,

Thank you for your question. I've tried to find some concrete information which would answer your question, but have come up empty-handed.

This seems like something which would be best answered by your physician. Then you would have the opportunity to address whatever your concerns might be.

I know that for me, the spinal tap necessary to be diagnosed did not cause injury. But it was certainly an unpleasant experience, one which I would not wish to undergo on a regular basis.

I know this doesn't answer your question, but I hope that it helps just to have someone respond. Come back and let us know how you're doing on occasion, or feel free to ask another question.

Lisa
