[QUOTE]My feet have always had high arches and there is no one in my family with any history of this.[/QUOTE] CMT is a genetic syndrome. If there isn’t any other family members with CMT it doesn’t sound right.

It should not take but 2-3 days for the spinal tap results. Normal protein levels are 15-45. If the protein level is above 45, and all other cell counts are normal, chances are, you have GBS.

They may be checking your CSF for oligoclonal bands which may indicate possible Transverse Myelitis or Multiple Sclerosis. Ask your doctor – you’re paying the bills.

Best regards.
