really sick 4 days after lumbar puncture

Posted , 1 user is following.

its got increasingly bad i had a Lumbar Puncture Fluoroscopy on friday and it was no sweat but the pain and headaches started and then cold sweats and chills and vomiting, neck and back pain, sunday i went to hospital and they said it might be a csf leak. they sent me home with meds for nausea and vomiting but it doesnt help i just puke that up to. ive been feeling really out of it too. i thought it was getting a lil better yesterday but its horrible today still.  i been puking and laying down really doesnt help me with feeling better. 

could this be normal? the doctor said something about calling the hospital for blood patch but i just dont feel like doing anything i just feel horrible i was thinking it could go away on its own or something

it also hurts to breathe. i dont feel like going to hospital and everything again i just went sunday.

have others gone through this? is this part of having a CSF leak or what
