Spinal headache?

Postby hls268 » Sat Mar 19, 2011 3:13 pm

I just had my 3rd c-section a few days ago and have a slight headache over my eyes and a throbbing neck. I did have an awful spinal headache after my 2nd c-section and needed a blood patch. Any thoughts?

I got a spinal headache after DD was born in December. Anethesiologist recommended drinking caffeine and said I could take over the counter migrane medicine. (He did not recommend the blood patch b/c risk of getting an epidural headache from the needle used to do the patch)

I ended up drinking caffeine and was taking pain medication for my c-section but really time was the only thing that helped. On day 5 the pain just went away. It is absolutely miserable so I hope you feel better soon :)

I didn't want to just read and run, but I'm afraid I don't have any advice for you. I hope you feel better! Congrats on the new baby!
