[QUOTE=Mrs R;5419808]Hi I am 11 days post LP and still suffering from the head ache , lying flat and having caffeinated drinks - any advice as nothing is helping ?[/QUOTE]

:wave: Welcome.

Post-LP headaches can often be the result of not lying flat for a sufficient time. 11 Days post and the headache still persists? I would say that you need a "blood patch" at the very least. The nurses orders to lie flat now may be of little help, but it is easier on you to remain flat to minimize the effect of the LP recovery side effects.

Ask the nurse who performed the LP to arrange a blood patch. Caffeine may also lessen the pain.

Sorry you are experiencing this issue. Both of my LPs had some headache afterwards, but by the following day I was better.
