I had a lumbar puncture just over two weeks ago. The first week after it, I couldn't walk. The second week, I can walk a wee bit but get severe muscle pain in legs, back, side, hip. This is calming down the more I rest though. Now I'm getting facial numbness when I walk. I'm unsure whether to rest more (I'm currently signed off work) or slowly do a bit of exercise to build myself up.
The lumbar puncture was to rule out MS and other inflammatory conditions: I have demyelination in my brain and they don't know what caused it. There seems to be no progression though recently developed symptoms like one leg shakes constantly, nerve pain in one foot, stumbling and lack of co-ordination.
So either this numbness is relating to original condition or it is relating to the lumbar puncture. Has anyone had anything like this?
