had 2 fusion, lumbar 4,5, with cages, titanium screws the works, on 3/23 of this year. Thought all was going well. Last Sun began with a miserable headache like none I'd ever had. Was taken to ER. They did MRI with and without contrast. Everthing was all right. Did CT same way, everything was all right. Dr. decided must have lumbar punch. Everything seemed all right. They released me. Next am, when I stood up had to call first aid to come get me a pain was even greater. Spent entire week in hospital with no good results. I got so upset with all the mistakes they made. They over medicated me....partly my fault. I got totally disorientented and lost in hospital. I refused medication all day on Friday so I could get somewhat alert and get out of hospital yesterday. I still have miserable headache. Now of course it's a holiday weekend and everyone and everything is closed and I'm suffering terribly. I'm scared...plain scared. The pain is so bad that I have to keep my head flat on the pillow. If I raise it all the pain goes over the top of my head and down the back of my head and seems to follow the liters in my neck and feels like my body is being paralyzed. My husband is frightened and so am I.
Has anyone any suggestion at all? I've had migraines for years, but never anything like this. No medicine seems to get rid of this pain. Nothing tastes right. HELP!!!
