Re: myelogram headache ?
It's very possible it's coming from that. When I had my fusion, they made 2 dural tears during surgery. I had to lie flat on my back for like 36 hours and then was allowed to get up and walk all I wanted to until discharged 2 days later and was doing great. But after I got home, it was a few days later and I got a spinal headache. It was terrible pain. Worse than any migraine I've ever had. I had nausea and vomiting and was out of my head, at least that's what my hubby said, cause I don't remember much after it started. I dehydrated and had to be readmitted 7 days after I was discharged. My neuro kept saying he may have to go back in to fix the leak, but he didn't want to unless he absolutely had too.
He let me go home after a couple of days, buy it had to be by ambulance because I had to lie completely flat and it was also over an hour trip. He gave me the medrol steroid pack to take and after a couple of days it went away and the headaches haven't bothered me since.
So yes any kind of puncture can cause a leak that can give you a spinal headache days after the procdure. I hope this is not what you have and you feel better soon. But it is better to be safe and call your doc.
