Leah Messer Suffering From Mysterious Headaches After Spinal Procedure
Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer is only 21 years old, but she's already gone through more medical procedures than most girls her age. In 2009, the West Virginia native popped out twin girls, Aliannah and Aleeah, and just three years later she welcomed her third child, Adalynn Faith, who was born prematurely via cesarean section.
On June 24, Leah revealed she's been suffering from debilitating headaches ever since undergoing a spinal procedure.
"I think my head might explode! I hate headaches !! I haven't been the same since I had my Spinal tap!" Leah tweeted on June 24.
We're not sure why Leah would have had a spinal tap (typically done to remove fluid for testing), but it's quite possible she's talking about a spinal block, which is similar to an epidural and common during C-sections. Leah definitely had some sort of numbing medication administered in the spinal area, and told Us Weekly she experienced a severe complication when she began leaking spinal fluid.
According to WebMD, headaches can occur after a spinal block procedure, but usually go away within five days. Leah had her C-section back in February, which means her headaches have been going on for months now. We think it's time to visit a doctor, lady!
