Severe Pain

Started by Sarah Rae Hegmann on 02/01/2017 12:28am

I just had a spinal tap the other day because I am having severe headaches. Now I am having severe hip pain and my legs are going numb. Should I be worried and go back to the hospital?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Yes!! Call your doctor right away - this could definitely be considered an emergency! If you can't reach your doctor quickly, I would head to the ER!! Best of luck!
