Lumbar Puncture

Reagan's pediatric neurologist ordered a lumbar puncture to check for treatable neurotransmitter diseases (including the one associated with folic acid deficiency). It was a traumatic ordeal for everyone because they decided not to use general anesthetic and we had to hold her down while they performed the procedure! I would highly recommend sedation. The results all came back negative.
