So sorry, I am back for some more advice.
I had my lumbar puncture on tuesday (diagnostic for MS)…four days ago. I had a bit of a bleed and they struggled for a while whilst I was lying down it was agony. Finally when I sat up it worked. I drank lots of coke and have laid down ever since.
I am still laying flat. I feel sick and keep having nose bleeds. My headache is agonising and I am taking cocodomol and ibrobrufen together…but it still hurts and is horrendous if I lift my head up. It is absolutely debilitating and I wish that I had not had it done.
Worse case scenario…does anyone know how long it might last?
(I can’t do anything and was trying so hard to exercise, get healthy, give my body a chance to fight the MS and now I am lying here and feeling all of my symptoms getting stronger…arrrgh)
thank you Ali
PS… I know that it is not like this for everyone, please try not to worry if you have to have one.
