In brief: Possibly
Pain directly at the lumbar puncture injection site should only last a few days.
Injection of contrast material for imaging study or medication for therapeutic reasons can create temporary irritation of the nerves. This will result in weakness. Don't wait on this, please consult with your doctor.
