Hi yogamum, I had a baby by ECS 7 months ago and since then i have suffered, dizzyness, ear aches head aches, numbness tingling metal taste in mouth, I have been advised my gp (after several visits) that i have a virus, etc then i was told i have post natal. I then talk them into blood tests which proved negative. I was at my wits end and have googled my way throughn everything until i read about \CSF leaks and its the onl;y thing that fits the bill. I have been ill since my section and was in perfect helath the day before it, i get back ache head ache dizzy to passing out etc etc .
I shall demand a CT scan tomorrow as i think i have found the end to my 7 month misery.
