Did anyone else have back labor?

it's been ten days and my back is still killing me.
i was wondering if it's leftover tension from labor or if it's the epidural side effect
i also have headaches but i guess that could be lack of sleep

  • It could be either. My mom had epidurals with my brothers and still has pain from it. I had back labor with my oldest because he was 'sunny side up'. He is nearly 5 years old and I still have back pain from time to time.

  • I have a really bad back after epidurel, felt brused, it did go eventually, propably doesn't help that your constantly bending over to pick up baby! If it continues I'd definately speak to a Doctor.

  • I had back labor for both my children and even though I didn't have an epidural for neither one I get very bad lower back pain because of the labor so I can imagine that with the epidural the back pain is worse and after having my kids my headaches are bad so I imagine it's all connected.

  • IT'S DEFINETLY EPIDURAL SIDE EFFECTS !
    ALOT OF PEOPLE HAVE LONG TERM EFFECTS FROM IT, BUT LIKE YOU SAID IT'S ONLY BEEN 10 DAY'S, IT'S ALL STILL NEW & TENDER. GIVE IT TIME. MY DAUGHTER'S 3 & I STILL HAVE SOME ACHING IN MY BACK THAT MY DOCTOR SAID COULD BE FROM THE EPIDURAL. GOOD LUCK :) & CONGRATS !!!
