leg pain from blood patch

Posted by @rita, Sep 17, 2011

I have had chronic headaches everyday for the past year. not migraines but possible low spinal fluid so I had a blood patch a month ago that went well nothing but soreness afterwords and the headaches stop being everyday after the initial 24 hour one that was too painful to mention. but after 3 weeks they begin to come back everyday so I just had second blood patch yesterday and it was the most painful procedure. now I’m concerned because during this one he went lower into my back and as he was pushing in the blood the pain was so extreme in my right leg down to my toes that I wonder if something was hit. I cried and screamed and today I am still having leg pain, like intermittent numbness and pain.. Should I be worried???
