Severe pain after lumbar puncture

Posted , 1 user is following.

In January i became ill. Sickness, mild headache, loss of sensation in right arm. Sensitive to light. I had ct scan, mri  same day they found a small fatty tumour in my brain neurosurgeon said this isnt causing the symptoms. Next day i had a lp done it was very painful and it took 7 attempts before he decided he couldn’t do it  then 3 hours later someone else tried did it first attempt but again very painful and i went into shock on needle coming out. Its now 6 months later and ive been left with chronic back and neck pain and throbbing headaches pins and needles in my arms and legs. I cant walk far and i cant work atm as im in so much pain daily . I have just been told I have a bulging disc in my back but no diagnosis on other symptoms. Im so fed up ive just started having anxiety problems and couldn’t breathe yesterday it was so scary. Im at my witts end on what it is that causing it. Has anyone else had similar problems. X
