Here is My Question:
I was diagnosed with MS (lesions on brain MRI) in Feb 2014. I had a Lumbar Puncture. Since that time I have a very uncomfortable feeling at the base of my neck in the center or the top of my spine (I think) that feels like pressure. It even get painful at times. What can I do, without medicine to relieve that feeling that won't cause damage to my spine?
Your symptom is not one I can diagnose over a blog, but requires a face-to-face visit with your doctor. Occasionally, an unusual headache can occur after a spinal tap that is only present when sitting or standing up, but goes away when you lay down. This pain can be reflected in the neck as well. Usually this is self-limited and goes away on its own. Your symptoms sound different and require a formal evaluation in clinic. Once the cause is suspected/known, then your doctors can offer a course of therapy.
