I was seen in the emergency room for migraine headaches, During that visit it was suggested that I have a lumbar puncture to see if I has spinal meningitis. So reluctantly I agree because I wanted to find out what was wrong with me and why i was having such severe headaches. At that visit to that emergency room it was determined that I had viral spinal meningitis, So I was given some medication and sent home. The next day I had the worst headache of my life
It was like a ton of pressure pushing down on my head, neck, and back right at my spine. So I was seen by my family doctor and she sent me back to the emergency room. Once I got there the doctor that was seeing me wanted to do another lumbar puncture to make sure that the results that the other emergency-room get was correct. So once again reluctantly I agree to get that done. To make a long story short they told me that I did not have spinal meningitis and they could not figure out where my headaches were coming from. So now it's been over a month and I have a continuous headache that does not go away, I have to take some kind of medication for it to Subside, but once the medication wears off the headache comes right back. Sometimes I seem to have like a pulling sensation in my neck and shoulders that contribute to the headaches could this be from the spinal tap? I'm constantly in pain I feel like my life will never be the same if I don't get some kind of relief.... Somebody please if you can give me some answers or suggestions!!!!
