This is not a common condition and I cannot find much info on it. I’ve had it now for > 4 weeks been in hospital for over a week but it is not getting any better. If I stand or sit my head erupts into pain , like having a heavy weight put on the head. I’ve had 3 blood patches which haven’t worked and am off work sick. I’m being readmitted to hospital Friday if not improved. My only relief is lying down , painkillers don’t work. Diabetes management is getting harder as I can’t exercise. Anyone have experience of CSF leaks , tips or advice?
