Lumbar punctures hurt. There. I said it. Everyone said, “Oh they aren’t so bad,” but no… they don’t mention the aftermath. I already had a lower back that liked to take a vacation at the slightest wrong move, now it’s just downright agonizing. My head is no better. I kind of think my neurologist is full of shit. The lovely Dr. H. said I didn’t need a puncture, but noooo, I had to go and let Dr. Sucky talk me into it.
Dr. Sucky lies.
