“Spinal bones being cracked” could mean a recent fracture with paralysis, isthmic spondylolisthesis, spina bifida (congenital) or others.I need to know the history of this disorder. Did you cousin’s wife have the ability to walk and then lose it after an accident or infection or was she born this way?

The CSF leak after an injection is normally not too serious and a procedure called a blood patch can take care of this.
