I had an LP yesterday - quick and easy, no pain, and I lay flat for 30 minutes afterwards.
Today I woke up with the worst headache I've ever had, far worse than my original IIH headaches, and I've been conked out on my back for most of the day. I've got whooshing in the ears, tingling toes, nausea and painful pressure at the base of the skull. What I'm trying to find out is - when will these symptoms go away? 2 days, 3 days? I hate having time off work and I want to get back to "normal" as quickly as possible.
