A few months ago I had to have a lumbar puncture done. I didn't seem to have any problems from it (headaches) but lately it's been itching on my back where I had it done and there are tiny bumbs there. I also keep breaking out in other places that lasts for a little while and then goes away and comes out somewhere else. My back and the back of my legs itch alot. I had it done about 5 months ago and the itching started about 2 or 3 months ago.
When the Dr did the lumbar puncture, he had to do it several times because he couldn't get it right and finally had to get another Dr to do it. When he did it, I kept feeling pain down into my leg.
I guess I'm worried that they messed up something or something from that is causing my hives. I never had hives before like this. It's mostly pressure related - like when something is pressing on my skin or if I'm sitting for awhile my legs itch. How can I find out if somehow I got this from the puncture? Or is this not possible? I hope this all makes sense. I'd really like to find out what is going on. The itching is driving me crazy.
