Did this happen to you?

I had a spinal (instead of an epidural) with my last baby that I had in July. I got that done instead because it was a planned c-section. Well when I had the spinal done for one it was super painful but also he hit a nerve which sent a shock through my body. That was also painful. It has been five months since I had that done and my back still kills me in that spot. There are also times I will be sitting and kind of turn to move and my back locks (that is best way to describe it) and I cant move at all. Its like when your jaw locks and you cant move your mouth. My back will get stuck in a certain position and its very painful. Eventually once I can forget about the pain I move it gets back in place. Do you think this had anything to do with the spinal? I never experienced back pain before until I had that done. Thanks ladies for your help!

  • I suffered with back pain for 6 years after I had my daughter due to spinal as well. I have been on nutritional supplement that helped me with both back pain and 20 yers of migraine head ache, I have not been on any medication since. Let me know if you are interested and I will share information and how you can get it.

  • Is there a pain managmenet doctor in your area? I do transcription for one and most of his patients are there with back pain due to injury or child birth. Usually he will give them trigger point injections (they don't hurt; I've had them) or he will give them anti=infmallatories for the swelling. These methods seem to help alot of people. I hope you feel better. I had an epdiural, not the spinal so I can't tell you that I know how you feel. Good luck; let me know what happens
