Sure: I assume the LP was for symptoms or too look for disease states that may in turn be causing the fatigue.

Yes: I think your fatigue may not be related lumber puncture itself but may be due to ? Viral etiology or due to the reason LP done. Post LP mostly headache is common . Keep drinking lots of fluid that may help. Always to see your doctor is priority.
