Hi again everyone, I posted earlier in the week after my lumbar puncture. It seemed to go OK, but a day or two after, I had the most horrendous headaches and back pain. That seems to have mostly sorted itself out now, although I am still having to take things easy as I have some residual nausea and generally yucky feeling.
What I am most worried about (forgive me, I’m not usually such a hypochondriac!) is that in the last two days, the bottoms of my feet and legs are starting to feel a bit numb. I’ve still got sensation there, as I have poked myself with a pin/pen nib and can definitely feel it, but it’s just a weird sensation that I’ve not had before.
I wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar after a lumbar puncture? My first and only visible relapse was in May this year, so could this be the start of another relapse so soon after the last one? Or is this a common side effect of a lumbar puncture? It seems a bit co-incidental that this should appear just after having a needle poking around my spinal cord/nerves, so my gut is telling me that it’s probably to do with that, rather than a relapse! 🤞🤞🤞🙏🙏🙏
