headaches update

Just got back from the neurologist. Y'know how I have that problem with needles? Not only did I have enough blood for a full work up drawn today, but in a week's time, I get to have a large, dull needle stabbed into my spine and some of my spinal fluid removed.

Who, me? Scared?

What all did they tell you about the procedure? What all do you want me to tell you regarding what to expect? Either way, you know you've got my moral support! ::hugs:: :*

Just that it's a spinal tap. The neurologist seems to think that my headaches are due to increased pressure around my brain, so she wants to do the lumbar puncture to test the pressure and such. Her theory is that young + heavy + on birth control = high blood pressure leading to high pressure around the brain. Why no one thought about this before (what with the family history of high blood pressure and my own wonky blood pressure), I don't know.

All I know is ACK BIG NEEDLE IN MY SPINE ACK ACK ACK.
