Patient

Q: Hi I am 22. I have been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri and had a lumbar puncture done Friday Morning. I was having spinal headaches so I had a blood patch done today. Now I have a severe headache laying down and standing up, my back is in a ton of pain, my neck is stiff, my whole body is throbbing and extremely sensitive to touch, my eyes hurt, the inside of my ears feel like they are on fire and my oral temp is 99.9. Should I go back to the ER or is this normal after a blood patch?
