Had an LP on Tuesday, and have been suffering really badly with back pain ever since.
I’m ok if I remain laying down, but I can’t sit or stand for more than a few minutes without having unbearable pain across my lower back, in my hips and occasionally down my legs. Walking is really painful.
I also get pains in my head, along with horrible feeling of pressure in the top of my back and my head, if I stand/sit up for too long, but these go away if I lay down.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal after a LP. I was expecting a possible headache, but the back pain was not mentioned at all as a possible side effect and doesn’t seem to be getting any better. They did catch a nerve during the procedure, so I’m wondering if this may be the cause.
