  • it is not uncommon for headaches and other side effects from an epidural to last more than a year (and they can be much worse than labor pain)

  • I didnt have headaches but my back hasn't been the same since and my son is 7 months old, so I've been doing exercises to try and rebuild my back muscles and make them stronger because little tasks are impossible with a bad back
