epidural problem?

i just my son on tuesday (the 8th) and i got an epidural. i was in labor for 4hrs and everything went fine. but when they were giving me the epidural, as they were pushing the needle in and out i felt this tingling feeling as they pushed the needle in and it went away as they took it out. they said it was just because my feet were hangin off the side of the bed and was losing pressure, so i believed them..then after giving birth, i started getting this horrible pain in the back of my neck and terrible headaces. they just finally calmed down. but i STILL have numbness and tingling in my feet, actually its in my left foot. i cant feel anything, do u think this could be from the epidural?? if so , what should i do?? thank u

  • Well i never got the epi, but i have heard from many others that people who never had headaches b4 got really bad one after that forever. But the numbness or loss of feeling in your foot is not normal, if its from the epi or not im not sure, but i would definitly call the doctor asap, its not normal. Good luck hun :)
