I had a lumbar puncture on Friday. I called my doc this morning and I STILL have a spinal headache (bad one) and it feels like I got kicked in the back with a truck. They want me to go in tomorrow morning to get a blood patch because it is not healing. My question is WHAT can I do in the mean time for the pain? Tylenol is NOT working.
