Headache and dizziness

Edited , 7 users are following.

hey guys!

so i have a headache everyday for the last 3 months. some days arent so bad like others. sometimes it's just head pains in random areas of my head. my doctor has said theyre migraines. they started after a lumbar puncture that was done at the hospital. but i dont know, i get this weird feeling like if im drunk or like high. i feel myself being present, but not quite all the way. this feeling comes and goes, but is very persistent. i get this tingling sensation at the top if my head and this throbbing feeling too. it mainly feelings like a swollen type of feeling. have any of you experienced this type if dizziness/drunk/high feeling? it makes it hard to concentrate. kinda feels like im half asleep type of feeling but im not, im fully awake.

    To me it sounds like you have a CFM leak it can happen pretty easily after having a lumbar puncture if it doesnt heal correctly. I would mention this to a doctor because it is very treatable. From what I have read something as simple as a blood patch works wonders most times and cures it. Search CFM leak symptoms on google and I am sure you will find you have most if not all of them.

      i did have a blood patch in october. it did help a bit, but i still feel a lot of symptoms still. when they did yhe lumbar puncture they took a lot of fluid out. so im not sure what to think anymore...... im not sure if its just anxiety of thinking its related from it or its just high stress. i literally feel like im losing it.
