Well I do talk with moms that have mild-to-severe complications, no epis for my own deliveries.   (I am a birth advocate so generally help moms to choose alternatives to the epidural.)    
You can see y
our doctor, maybe a chiro or get acupuncture, but this may last a long time~   I am so sorry!

GL!

Only reason I have back problems because I have huge boobs.

I had an epidural with my 3rd child and have never had a problem with my back. You should definitely see a doctor. I hope you can  find a resolution so that you can feel better.

I didn't, but I also didn't have an epidural for this exact reason, I would never take a chance with all those possible complications.

I had pains like yours for a few months after having my daughter, now a year later I get random shooting pains in my back where I got the epi but no where near as much as I did before. Good luck.

I had an epi with both boys. With #2 I had back issues the first few months after, but they cleared up on their own

See, people always say epidurals have practically no risks but I disagree! This is why I didn't have an epidural. Definitely see a doctor and have a water birth next time! So worth it!
