I had laminectomy/discectomy and both sides of L3/L4 and L4/L5 Dec. 4th. I noticed a couple of weeks after surgery that I was having headaches about all the time. There is a lot of pain at the base of my skull that reaches up into my head along the side of the back and top and behind my eye. This happens on both the right and left sides, but mostly on the left side. I had a brain scan done this morning (CT). I think though this pain is probably seated in my neck and upper spine. My back problems have always been in my lower back, and I've never been prone to have headaches, so this is all new to me. I would appreciate any input - thanks.
