Holy crap, I've been looking for somebody that had a similar experience that I have, you just explained my entire epidural. Only after it was all said and done and I went to dr after dr and chiropractor I finally went and got my report for me epidural, and he lied! About how many attempt, which was 7, and how no blood was present and no problems, which was a lie. And now I'm in the middle of suing them because I can't even begin to stand for over an hour. I'm glad you got relieve and know what's wrong.
