Anyone who's had a lumbar puncture... Did you have pain wrap around from one side of your ribs to the other with discomfort, tightness, and stiffness? Did you have numbness and tingling sensations around the injection site of your spine?
I had my LP yesterday and the doc said I'd probably have pain. But I wasn't expecting these symptoms, especially from ribs. I expected pain in the muscle at the site. I've been using ice, and I took a Tramadol last night & Tylenol this am. Any suggestions is appreciated! 🙏🌼
Shady, its too soon for you to feel a big difference most likely. My first neck surgery it took 3-4 months and my second was nearly 16 months before I began feeling better. Also, because the second took so long I became very weak from immobility. I made myself start small and work up to more and more activities cleaning house. If I hadn't it would probably have taken longer and I'd have been even weaker. Give yourself a little more time. Praying for solid good healing for you. 🙏🌼
No Flappys!!! You need the good stuff alright already!!! I am hoping that all these punishing health problems, procedures and stupid doctors are done messing with you and am visioning good stuff in its place. 🌷☀️
Weezie, I woke up feeling weird. As I walked it felt strange to my legs, then my hubby said I was walking funny. Within 30 minutes I began having trembling in both hands. I got up to go to the kitchen and nearly fell. I have been on 2 canes all day.
Flappsy I am sorry to hear that you were doing so much better. You probably need to go to urgent care and be checked out. Somethings not right. I am really worried about where they did the punture may not have closed up and air may have gotten inside. Excuse my spelling please. If it hasn't it can cause all kinds of problems. Please call your Dr and go to a emergency @a hospital. Will be praying for you.
Weezie, I think this is due to whatever is causing my tremors. I slept late this am (first time in years,but I was exhausted). This am my legs & shoulders still feel heavy, and my hands a a slight tremor. But nowhere near as much as yesterday. My daughters cooking lunch and we're going there. If still present in am I'll call my neurologist office. Thanks & have a blessed Easter!
