Post-lumbar puncture symptoms - pain & dizziness

@ryman The post-lumbar puncture symptoms you mentioned are really quite normal. I had a lumbar puncture a number of years ago and found bed rest and copious amount of Cola (for the caffeine) helped, but I still had a 3 day headache and felt nauseous during that time. The side-effects eventually wore off, but it was difficult for the first few days. It is best to keep still and don’t try to keep up with your usual activity level. Best wishes. Teresa
