After a lumbar puncture

Hi all. I had a lumbar puncture in the ER last night and am finding that my low back is really painful today. Fortunately I didn't get a headache from the procedure.

I'm wondering if anyone's had this done, how long might the low back pain last?

Hi...it has been almost 39 yrs since I have a LP...and have no recollection of low back pain as I did have the HA from the procedure...

I am happy for u that u did not get the HA....continue to rest up, no lifting bending etc...for the next day and drink plenty of water....

  Not sure what u can take for the pain other then an OTC NSAID.

Hope u feel better soon <3
