just a question
my doctor is wanting to do an mri of my lower/lumbar spine to see if he can see any spinal fluid leakage, or anything. I have been having lightheadedness, massive headaches, etc. with no known cause. I have had brain mri's, cspine mris, bloodwork, ent workups, cardiac workups, you name it. This all started 6 years ago when I had an epidural with my daughter. It actually started a week or two after, but wasn't really bad at first. Each year it gets worse, to the point now where I have totally had to give up driving, going anywhere, etc. He said that I could have a spinal fluid leak somewhere causing all of this. Has anyone ever heard of a spinal fluid leak in the lower back causing this? My back or legs don't hurt. Just my head. If this doesn't show anything, then the next step will be a mylegram or lumbar puncture to check fluid pressure.
