Yes, I had seven lumbar punctures over the same amount of months and was in constant pain. I was eventually put on gabapentin which helped a lot. The pain was a bit like sciatica radiating from my spine and down my leg.

It will hurt for at least a week in extreme pain and 1 week with mild pain I had one 2 summers ago
