Hi,
You could have the backache due to the lumbar punture you have had. Also the headche could be due to the meningitis or the lumbar punture. What you need to do is drink 2-3 cups of tea or coffee for a couple of days, drink plenty of fluids approx 2 to 2.5 lts per day mostly milk , water and juices, try to avoid moving or working a lot, get adequate sleep and rest, keep lying down in your bed if possible and take some OTC painkillers. The headache and backache should go away in 5 -7 days. You could try local application of diclofenac gel to the area and see if that helps.
