Fatigue and dizziness after LP!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello. I had LP 2 weeks ago and i am feeling very bad. The headache was gone by the 5 day but i am very tired and weak all the time. I am feeling dizzy all the time and i feel so exhausted. All i do is resting in bed and drinking water but its not helping. I am feeling imbalance when i try to walk. Has anyone go through this? Did the dizziness went away? What did the doctors say? I am so scared that this is my new life now. I am only 30 and i dont have power to even shower. Would a blood patch help or it will make it worse? I don't know what to think anymore. Any answers will be appreciated.
