I am going in for a spinal tap tomorrow and I am SO nervous. How bad is it? What was your experience like? Did you get a headache afterwards?/
 
Any info would be appreciated

I had a spinal tap two years ago, it was not as bad as my mind said it was going to be.  As long as you follow directions and lay still after its over, you should be fine.  I never had a headache or any other bad effects.  I was like you, all worked up about having it done after hearing some stories from other people.  Just relax and try to stay quiet, it will be over before you know it!

Just wanted to say that it's DONE and it wasn't bad at all. I have a slight headache but nothing major!

Hello! I had a spinal tap two years ago. The actual process was no big deal for me. I could feel some pressure, but no real pain. I did get the headache the next day, and went in for a blood patch, which took my headache away. The whole experience was not bad at all for me. Best of luck! :)
