Does your back hurt from the epidural?

I had my bb 1 yr ago and for some reason I'm getting really bad back pain where the epidural was given. It almost feels like I have the needle in there and it's sore to the touch. Each day is getting more and more sore. I haven't had any problems until now. Has this happened to anyone? or similar?

  • that is something that may never go away. My son is 5 and if I get bumped in that area it feels like I've been stabbed. I asked a chiropractor / herbalist about it and he said it's nerve damaged and it is very common.

  • Every once in while I get a little twinge back there and it's like I can feel exactly where they put the epidural in. Mine doesn't hurt really bad or anything just annoying.

  • Similar thing happen to me but regular visits with a chiropractor fixed it all up.
