Sitting too long

Moomie, I feel it. I had a lumbar puncture earlier today. Because I've had headaches after 2 epidural before the radiology doc making me stay on bed rest 24 additional hours. I tried a recliner but too difficult to see our TV. In bed I can only use 1-2 pillows. Going to be bored and stiff. But at least the LP is over. Hope you can get some relief. 🙏🌼

Weezie it was very painful. Worse than any epidural or myelogram I've ever had. I'm thinking its one of two reasons: 1- because they were draining fluid out instead of putting something in, 2- because my spine, like other various areas on my body has become over sensitive to pain or stimulus. I'm feeling much better now. Just have to rest 48 hr instead of norm 24; had 2 headaches following epidurals before. Doc said better safe than sorry.
