well I had my daughter 5 days ago and i jad an epidural. this is my second child. with mt first daughter i had no issues what so ever. this time the doctor could not get the epidural between the dicks or bones and had to try 3 times. well as he did this it was like he was getting frustrated. my boyfriend stood behind him amd said he was moving the needle from left to right and as he did this i could have sworn he was hitting my bone/disks. as he was moving the needle from left to right i got a horrible pain in my back that made me cry it was like a knife stabbinf me in my back multiple times . well now 5 days later im having horrible back pain in several spots . under my left shoulder blade its as if my bavk is caving in. I was sitting on the couch holding my 7lb daughter and I felt like I could almost drop her. its like I cant hold her In my left arm ever . also the top of my spine just aches as well as the bottom of my spine & around where he injected the needles (all 3) it just hurts so bad. not to mention the top of my right butt cheek is still numb. when I touch it its just tingly and I have no feeling in this spot ! im no professionalbut this is not normal what should I do the pain is unbearable I cant sit forward I need to lean against something or else it will throb the whole day long. when im laying in bed I feel like the pain is crippling me and it shoots to my side. helppp
