I THOUGHT IT WAS A SINUS HEADACHE.. I GUESS I WAS WRONG..

SO I WENT TO THE DOC'S TODAY AND WELL, MY DOC SAID THAT MY HEADACHE IS FROM WHEN I HAD MY SON WHENI GOT THE EPIDURAL, BECAUSE THEY DIDNT PUT IT IN RIGHT SO IT TENSES MY HEAD AND GIVES ME A HEADACHE..

NEVER HEARD OF ANYTHING LIKE THAT... HAVE YOU?

  • My mom had a spinal headache from her epidural when she had me. She said it was absolutely horrible. Hope it gets better for you.

  • I have heard of spinal headaches. They are very painful. I get epidural injections in my lower back (put in the spine) for disc problems. They told me if I get a spinal headache to lay down flat, and it should go away (I was also told to report it to the Dr.). My Neurologist said if it is a true spinal headache, laying flat will make it go away.
