My son was bor 12 1/2 years ago. I had a c-section, but before they realized I needed an emergency c-section I had an epidual. About 2 months ago I started have back pain in the exact spot where teh epidural was injected into my back. It feels like I have a really bad bruise. I had my sister look at my back and she said there is nothing there, no bruising, swelling, marks....NOTHING. It has really gotten pretty bad, like a constant pain. I called my OBGYN today and spoke with my Doctor whom did not deliver my son, nor did the office treat me 12 years ago, and they said they had never heard of any type of pain after 12 years. They said it had to be something else and I should go to my regular doctor and have him look at it. I know my body, I know where they stuck that needle, and I know that I have done absolutely nothing to my back to cause this pain. It is only the injection site, but the discomfort does spread out to about the size of a grown mans fist balled up. I personally think they did not want to say it was related to the epidural because of legal issues. I just want to know if it is truly possible after 12 years of nothing, to all of a sudden have this pain that won't go away. It feels like something is jabbing in my back when I lean back in a chair. Has anyone ever heard of this before. Could it truly be something else, or is it possibly from the epidural?
