What would cause pain and tingling from an unsuccessful spinal tap?

She had this last wednesday.  Her bloodwork was ok and nothing showed from her mri.  She is still in a lot of pain.  The Dr suggested physical thearpy.  I don't want her to go and maybe make thing worse as they have. this worse.  As they don't have a y idea what is going on.

What made it unsuccessful? Did something go wrong, or did it not give any results?

Some pain is expected after, but without knowing why it was unsuccessful, it's hard to say if it's normal or not. Has the doctor examined her?
