  • I never had that problem with mine and I had three. Maybe call your OB and ask.

  • How long ago did you have your epi....b/c mine hurt like that for about a month or so.
    One night my dh was going to be nice and scratch my back.....he VERY softly touched the spot where my epi was and it sent a spasm down my leg that made me scream....it hurt sooo bad the rest of the day.....

    It can take a while to get back to normal!

  • I had it too! It's the weirdest sensation! i'm a wellness consultant and the best thing for me has been using a large back magnet called a flex. It increases blood flow and promotes quicker healing and the flushing out of toxins. I sell them. pm me, and take a look at my website. it's got some info, www.nikken.com/1heart1mind

  • Unfortunately, long-term or even permanent nerve damage is one of the risks of having a catheter inserted into your spine. Hope your pain eases soon.
