I had an epidural in 2006, when it went in my back, I had bad tingling through the entire left side of my body. I had clear liquid leaking out of my back for weeks after I went home and had a hard time walking. I have constant burning pain from my lower back down, my legs twitch, spasm, shake, cramp, my bones in my back actually feel like the are grinding together, I am off balance (I stumble like I am drunk, but do not drink), I fall quite often, my feet don't stay straight when I lift my legs they drop down, I feel like spiders are crawling on my legs and back all the time, sometimes I feel like I have had an accident and look and have not. Does anyone know what may be wrong with me? First he thought Arachnoiditis, then Degenerative Disc disease, then scoliosis, then meralgia parasthetica. I haven't been able to work in years and really need to figure out what is wrong so I can get it fixed so I can work again. Any help is more than appreciated. Thank you.

  • What's wrong is that it sounds like malpractice was involved, in which case doctors will steer you anywhere but to a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment, which should have begun as soon as the symptoms began. Start your research with epidural injury. If you want a true diagnosis, you'll need to go outside the area where the doctor who injured you practices, or consider finding a lawyer, but improving your health while minimizing counterproductive stress should be your first priority.
