Hey gang, Last week I had my quarterly injection into my low back. Shortly after the doctor voiced concerns that a wet tap occurred (at first idk what he meant) but then he started talking about leaking spinal fluid & I understood. Besides my legs feeling weird I felt ok when I left at home I laid flat like advised. About 9hrs later when I got up to let my dog out I got a headache but worse was it felt like a hole put into my skull where lava was then poured in it burned so bad & my scalp the side touching skull felt tingly & itchy. Current plan is to lay flat on my back (uncomfortable for my back issues) drink extra caffeine & only get up if necessary until Mon when if not better by then I’ll go in & they’ll do a blood patch. Has anyone experienced this any advice? This position is killing my back & any warning signs I should be aware of where I’d need to get to hospital asap. The headaches haven’t been worst ever but the melting brain feeling is unsettling. Any tips appreciated!
I had a kidney stone removed 3 days ago and a stent placed. Has anyone else experienced swelling in the groin afterward?
I’m so not okay. Mon and Tues were not so bad. But today I am really down. Made it to the pool. Splashed around a bit. Did a few exuberant jumps for my inner child. Joy just happens in the pool. Even on the worst days. Not always. But today. The water is blue and when I’m floating, I don’t feel so heavy.Would like to marry a mermaid and be even. In the ocean. With the fish.
