Default Leak Symptoms

I am looking for information on CSF leaks. I am wondering if CSF leaks will cause constant tiredness. I have had lumbar drain implanted and seem to be tired all the time.

If this is a common side effect or uncommon side effect I would like to know.
I have had little success in researching this type of information...I only seem to be able to find out that head aches are the only problem. With my CSF leak head aches were not that common or severe, as my leak was at C7-T1. There was not alot of wieght to cause that much pressure. But Being Tired now that is another ball game.

If you can help with info to read or who to possibly contact that would be great.

Thank you,

I had to have a lumbar puncture back on November 9th. Two days after the puncture I got bad headaches that would only go away when I lay down. They would come back about 15 minutes after I got up. Since then I am still getting headaches, although, not as bad and they don't come until a few hours after I have been up. Iam also very tired but that has been a symptoms of mine even before the LB. If I do any physical work like cleaning I have to lay down because Iam too exhausted. Sorry I don't have any solid information, just what has been happening to me.
