I am 23 year old ,10 weeks back I had an arthroscopy surgery for which the Anesthetist gave me spinal anesthesia, immediately after the surgery I was quite fine but at the time of discharge which happened 2 days after the surgery I had headache and backache for which doctors said nothing to worry, it’s quite common and happens in every case as I was lying on bed from past 2 days the back pain will be there for few more days thats how they convinced me and discharged me. 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 now my eyes feel very much stressed out I feel sleepy lot this was not the case at all before but now I face this. Now my neck pain is quite too much and I carry daily little bit of headache, its quite uncomfortable to work with all this pains. Can any body please help me out in this?

Response appreciated….
