Severe headaches, especially those that occur when you're upright and that start abruptly, may signal a spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, also known as spontaneous intracranial hypotension.

We have extensive experience treating CSF leaks, even in people who have not had success with other treatments. Our experts help people find relief from symptoms they’ve lived with for years, sometimes even decades.
