I am 23 year old and 10 weeks back had an arthroscopy surgery for which the Anesthetist gave me a spinal anesthesia, immediately after the surgery I was quite fine but at the time of discharge which happened 2 days after surgery I had headache and backache for which doctors replied saying nothing to worry, it’s just because as I am laying on bed from past 2 days. The very next day I get an unbearable headache due to which I was rushed to another hospital where the doctors after keeping me for half day in ICU decided to do an epidural blood patch. After this second surgery I got immediate relief, and was discharged but later I started getting lot of neck pains, and daily little amount of headache, backache for which doctors say it will reduce with time and are giving some medicines which are not of much help. Now it’s near 10 weeks and I still have headache, neck ache (even though percentages are less), my neurologist has cleared me off meningitis. Even my eyes feel very much stressed out I feel sleepy lot this was not the case at all before but now I face this. Can any body please help me out in this?

Response appreciated….
