How can one get rid of pain after a myelogram test ?

I had a myelogram 2 weeks ago today and a blood patch 2 days after that in which IPT dye was used. As soon as it was injected I started having severe pain. I am now hurting so bad in my low back down my tail bone , and left leg when I stand I just want to die. It is even moving from place to place while turning over in bed. How do I get this dye out? I can t take it much longer. Thanks
