Lumbar puncture/pressure/anxiety

Hi all! Hope everyone is going well! It's been awhile since I have been on here! I am going to try and make this as short as possible. The dr seen pressure behind my eyes. (Last year) Got an MRI(about 6 months ago), no tumor,aneurysm,blood clot etc etc THANK GOD. Headaches continued, vision doesn't seem as sharp and pressure was still there but not as bad at last visit. Dr wanted me to get a lumbar puncture. To check to see if I have Pseudotumor. So I went and got this done Friday. The day after I had to leave work because when I would stand or sit up I would have this annoying headache with this weird pressure feeling! It has progressively gotten better but the pressure feeling still persist when I stand and I have this pressure feeling in my face/jaw area & it is concerning to me. I am awaiting the call back from my Dr but am conflicted as to wether this is the dreded anxiety making me feel this way right now. Anyone ever have a slightly similar experience?
