csf leak

I have had orthostatic headaches due to prolonged iatrogenic csf leak or at least this is my assumption considering the headaches started the day after I had a terrible epidural. I have had 5 blood patches the last 2 working for short amounts of time. I have had a lumbar ct myleagram, a brain MRI, and a spinal ct scan all with no sign of a leak. I am waiting until May to see a neurologist and hopefully a neurosurgeon. How can I find a doctor who specializes in dural tears or punctures?

Hi,
How are you? I'm sorry to hear what you have been through since your epidural. Finding the best doctor suited for your condition may involve asking for a referral from your attending physician or seeking list of specialists from your local health office or hospitals. Further evaluation and diagnostic tests may need to be done especially if the blood patches did not work. Take care and do keep us posted.
