Hello. I had an LP 7 months ago to rule out suspected meningitis. After the LP, I needed a blood patch due to the post LP headache and backache. During the blood patch, I had a lot of pain. The doctor took a while to get everything in place and seemed to hit something in there, causing me a lot of pain. I stayed still though, and he told me I would have a backache for a good 6 weeks. I did have that backache. The problem is, I still do. I cannot stand, sit, or walk for more than 10 minutes without a lot of pain and stiffness. I can't even turn at the waist. Can you please shed some light on what could be wrong? I am 34, active, and otherwise healthy. I just am tired of hurting all the time.
