I have had the same problems but only had one epidural. My nurse left me on my side for 45 minutes while my son was literally coming on his own. When Ethan was here and it was all said and done I snapped on my nurse and she yanked the epidural out of my back. I have 2 cysts in my spine. one in my thoracic and one in my lumbar region. I have been on pain meds for 4 years, I have scan after scan, gone to chiropractors, done PT, I have done it all but no one has been able to figure it out. My doctor has finally after 4 years referred me to a spine specialist. I was tested for lupis but not ms. I have been wondering how to get my records from the hospital and try to figure out if this has been caused do to that epidural. Any help would be great here as well.
