Hi, I recently had a lumbar puncture and some CSF removed as was expericening pressure in my head and feeling faint and nausea . Felt relief post LP but needed a blood patch as had horrendous nausea and headache. Came home on Saturday from hospital and have felt good. Today I feel a constant throbbing in my head and completely fatigue . I am worried if something is going to happen to me and I m very anxious. My CT brain and NRI were negative

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Relax. No need to worry -
The doctor would not have allowed you go home, if there was a serious problem...
Normal scan is very much reassuring indeed.

Both CT & MRI were done??
Headache after lumbar puncture is well known and has scientific explanation.
Take bed rest / drink plenty of fluids / use simple paracetamol.
If the headache persists, see your doctor again

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
