Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board


I totally understand where you are coming from. I had severe headaches for about 5 days. By the time I talked to my doctor he said we should wait on the blood patch since I should be naturally healing soon. I would say I had a low level headache for an additional 5-7 days. I loaded up on fluids and caffeine (which can help) and eventually the headaches went away. My doctor said that for the nagging lasting low level headaches there was not much he could do. I did have vicodin (for my neck pain) that I used during my "myelogram recovery".

Hopefully I never have to do that test again.
