Spinal headache

Apr 01, 2016 12:10 PM

So, contacted the neuros office this morning. Have had an ever increasing headache since Wednesday really. Was really bad last night to the point of wanting to go to the ER. Neuros office explained to me that it is most certainly a spinal headache. On bedrest the entire weekend(Boo). If it doesn't resolve itself by Tuesday, then they will do another tap for a blood patch. Think I'm just going to stay snuggled right down in my bed and only get up to pee or eat I think. I do NOT want to have to do a blood patch at this point. Also sleep study results came back today. I do NOT have sleep apnea, but I do snore quite loud apparently. Blessings to all. Will check back in later today.

Never mind. Just called neuros office back. Headache still there a week later. Something has got to give. Will update later after I get home from the surgeons office.

Oh no! Praying you get whatever treatment is needed to make the headache stop. I had one after a myelogram years ago. The neurologist did a horrible & excruciatingly painful injection in his office. My hubby had to hold my head completely still while the doc injected meds into my spine. I wanted to throw up but couldn't, and my hubby's shoes were soaked with my tears. Five minutes after the injection the headache was gone. But thank God I've never needed another one!! Hugs!! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Mopar, it's still there a bit and I just want it gone. Was very uncomfortable last night(down into my neck). It only gets bad if I'm up for too long(like I have been today)

Try to keep treating as much as possible. Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Flappys, hopefully tomorrow they will give me some answers already. I feel like crap right now.

Okay, so it's not a spinal headache per se. It's a low pressure headache. I'm crapped up on IV meds from the neurologist right now. It also appears that I might slowly be going into remission, but won't know until May 12th, when they do the next set of fundus photos/visual field testing.

Let's all stay positive that you are! 🙂💕🙏🌼

And it looks like I might(fingers crossed) be able to go back to work finally on Tuesday.
