Hello community. So I received a lumbar puncture almost 2 years ago and I still have pain around my spine in the precise area where the needle pierced me. The pain has been there continuously ever since the procedure. It feels like a dull tinge right on my spine, always limiting my movement and flexibility. Depending on my movement it can become a sharper tinge and pain. It feels like there is a little cyst that can hardly be felt but I'm pretty sure its there.
Admittedly, I have done little yet to try and solve this issue. I spoke to a couple doctors from the same medical establishment, but they just shrugged their shoulders. The pain is less if I am warmed up, loose and in warm temperatures. Also I did have a blood patch 3 days after the puncture. I had severe headaches for a week after but they went away for good after that.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
