I don’t understand why an ER doc would be doing a spinal tap. It isn’t an urgent emergency and it is best done with special equipment which would not normally in the emergency department. When I needed one I was sent to a unit where that was done under a fluoroscope.

Your pattern is not typical. That is why your neurologist has doubts. It is important that she keep an open mind until the diagnosis is solid.
