I had a micro-discectomy on my L5-S1 on January 6th. Recovery was going well. Started PT. Felt really good. I put on my pants on day and came up too fast and felt something very odd like a pop but it was not my back/incision. Later that day I had stroke like symptoms. My following symptoms were severe headache, balance issues, sensitive to light, sensitive to loud noises, nausea, severe fatigue, metallic and odd tastes in my mouth, some muscle spams. I went to the ER after my stroke like symptoms, they said it was me coming off Valium. That didn't sit well with me. I went back to my spine surgeon, they were concerned, ordered an MRI and MRA and sent me to a neurologist. My MRI and MRA came back negative but I am not sure for what as my doc is not calling me back to go over them. I did some research and it sounds like I may have a spontaneous spinal fluid leak. Any suggestions? I am planning to get a second option.
