Side effects from myleogram

Can anyone please help?

I had a myleogram 4 weeks ago to try to diagnose a nerve problem in my left leg following a disc replacement operation earlier this year.

The thing is 4 weeks later I'm still getting headaches and have dizziness and feel light headed. It has got better over the 4 weeks as during the first week I spent 2 nights in A & E because they were very severe. Has anyone else suffered the same and has anyone any idea what I should do?

  • Hi thanks for the reply.
    Yes the headaches are worse when I'm standing and so is the light headiness and dizzyness. I didn't have a blood patch but they did mention it when I went into A & E for a short period a few days after I had it because the headaches were really really bad as well as vomiting. I've tried contacting my neurosurgeon but all I keep getting told is that it will get better with time but I really thought it wouldn't last for this long. I also tried speaking with the doctor that did the myleogram and he just passed me back to my original neurosurgeon!!!! Unfortunately I didn't rest at all following the procedure because they didn't tell me I had to:-(
    any other advice would be very welcome
