hey, so about 3 months ago i had a lumbar puncture done. i had it done because i was feeling dizzy and i had somewhat of a headache. 2 days later after that procedure, i had headaches everyday. the first month the headaches were so bad. like terrible, it got to the point where i would beg my parents to take me to the hospital, so that they could make the pain go away. now 3 months in i still have those headaches, but i so feel how my head or brain goes numb. it happens every time i stand up or sit up. i get this weird feeling like im in drugs or something. like i feel stoned. i have a lot of head pressure and pain in my head. i have this tingling that starts from the top of my head and it goes down. i have also started to feel numbness in my arms. my eyes hurt. i get throbbing in my head. i have fullness in my ears like theyre filled with air or like they need to pop. i get this spacey feeling. it kinda feels like nothing around me is actually real anymore. i can feel how that pain in my head moves around my brain. my doctor thinks the lumbar puncture triggered migraines, bur im not sure if it's that. i never had any of these symptoms before so its frustrating. due to all of this, i now started to have anxiety because of the non ending pain and numbness and everything i have explained above. no my symptoms are not being triggered by my anxiety. the headaches just never went away. i had really bad vertigo 2 to 3 weeks after the lumbar puncture. that gradually went away, but i still feel dizzy and that weird stoned feeling. before all this happened, i was working out a lot, and months later thats when i started ti get dizzy. i gave it a week, it continued, so i saw a doctor (not my regular doctor) but he said it was allergies. he gave me allergy meds, but it continued. i started to get lightheaded so i ended up going to the hospital. they just made everything worse with that stupid lumbar puncture because they thought i might have had meningitis. in my gut i had this bad feeling about letting them do this, but i was scared, so i said yes. now im stuck with these terrible headaches which by the way occur all day everyday, head numbness, and head pressure. any of you guys gone through this?
