  • Back pain is common after having an epidural for up to 18 months after giving birth, but it sounds like you should really consult a doctor if the pain is causing you to fall to the ground.

    Have you looked into your state's indigent or Medicaid plans to get insurance? There's no reason why a single mom who just had a baby should not have insurance. Do you have a free health clinic in your area? If not, check with some of the local hospitals if they have special discounts or payment plans available for those without insurance.

  • i worked for a neurologist for 5 yrs... we saw many mommies for unresolved back pain following an epidural... unfortunately epidurals can cause nerve damage.. you really need to consult with a dr.
