post-lumbar puncture was what it was. i didn't find much difference with it from when i was on oral balcofen, and i was one of the lucky 30% that got post-lumbar puncture headaches. not the best experience. refused to try it again.

anyone else find this?

Hi Erin,
Yeah, I was one of those "lucky" ones too. I still went through with the procedure because I found more benefits from using the pump than oral baclofen. One of the benefits that I like is that they can increase or decrease your dose in minutes depending on your spasticity levels!

Horrible headaches come from any type of lumbar puncture. They especially tell pregant women who request epidurals to let the nurse know if they have this type of headache. Don't feel bad, and maybe it'll work without the headache next time.
