Spinal Headache

How long does this headache last? I was fine the day after. Just a sore back but then yesterday I woke up with a headache, this is nothing new. I do that all the time but this one subsided only to come back stronger. I finally recognized it because it was the same headache I got with my meningitis. I came home from work around 2pm (couldnt make it the rest of the day) and laid down. I felt better. But I have it again today. I was just curious how many days I have to look forward to the lovely side effect??

Re: Spinal Headache

Oh, sweetie, I SO wishyou hadn't gotten it. Mine lasted 4 days. Try Advil migrane liquid caps. REST, take it very easy, get help with the kids. Praying for you.

Re: Spinal Headache

It really shouln't last too long.... Drink lot's of fluid I mean lot's mostly H2o but some with caffinee to replace what's gone. If it's not gone in another day I would call your doc you could be leaking fluid.....actully too long I would call my doc by the 3 day .....

Re: Spinal Headache


I'm sorry to hear that you have a bad headache. Did you lay flat like they told you to? I know that some people get up thinking, oh, I feel okay and that is not good. I will be praying for you and let us know how you feel!!

Hey! We thought it was smooth sailing the day after! But I have been in bed for almost 24 hours with that same splitting headache! I feel your pain... literally! Hang in there...

Re: Spinal Headache

I think they should change their instructions - be especially careful for at least 48 hours! Curious, Erin, stay in bed, it WILL pass.

Re: Spinal Headache

Erin, Sorry to hear you are having to go through the worse headache ever!! I am afraid mine lasted as long as Lilc .....4 DAYS. The only thing I found that made it go away was to lie flat and drink plenty of water with a few pain killers.
Hope your feeling better soon

Re: Spinal Headache

fuzzy's right. Water, water, rest, rest. The good news for me is that I'm continuing to drink more water!
