I’ve just been diagnosed, lesions, bands in csf etc.
2 months ago I had my first and last lumbar puncture. Firstly that was not pressure it was all out pain. 45 minutes, multiple attempts, 2 punctures and a nurse holding my shoulders while I screamed and begged them to stop. Twice they hit a nerve for my right leg, felt like my leg was on fire. Sorry if that scares anyone, the woman after me took 5 minutes and didn’t feel a thing go figure.
Anyway it’s been 2 months and I can out my finger on the exact spots they pierced me as I’m still in pain. I’ve also had throbbing pains throughout both legs since.
Doesn’t seem to be anywhere medical I can go with this so asking if anyone knew how long to heal and any tips for helping with the pain? It’s really affecting me while driving.
