Post from today nov 9th

My situation was the same after even 6 days. I decided to go to ER after 6 days and explained doctor the situation. They gave me painnkilles and nausea meds . Neuros came and advised me to wait for one more week. They told me to come back if it doesn't get better in another week then they said they will do tge blood patch.

Now after waiting for 1 week my situation is quite better. I don't get those terrible headaches but these new problems like neck stiffness, terrible crack sounds in my neck when i turn in any direction, back ache, legs ache, feeling of extreme tiredness, urge to lie down after few hours to give

rest to neck , back .It is interfering in my day to day living.

I quit my job and i have no stress , no worry at all but i get frustated with these new problems after LP.

Please anyone advise, what shoukd i do, its been 3 weeks already. Do i go and get the blood patch after 3 weeks or just wait, it might get better on its own and keep crying everyday and regret why i agreed for LP. Its really affecting my family life, my mood and i havealready quot my job.

My previous post oct 13th

I m on bed from last 4 days and drinking lots of fluids. Just taking day by day. I haven't seen any doctor/ specialist for this new problem since LP on oct 13th. But it feels terrible, i m starting my own business and in 2 months the business will b operational,but right now can't read/ write or work on computer. I m being optimistic that it will get better,i will wait till thursday , if it doesn't then i will go to ER

    How are you? I'm not right still from an accidental puncture during an epidural for labor. I'm losing hope of feeling normal again.
