    A 25-year-old female presents 5 days after discharge from hospital following an admission for suspected meningitis. A lumbar puncture was performed which showed no evidence of infection. Unfortunately she developed a headache 48 hours after discharge. This has now lasted 3 days and has failed to settle with analgesia. Which one of the following treatment options should be considered?

    1- Blood Patch
    2- Course of oral steroids
    3-Repeat Lumber Puncture
    4- Do nothing
    5-Intravenous Steroids
    6- Intravenous Fluid Overload
