Hello, I have had a child 2 years ago and while in the hospital I had an epidural. This is where it begins. When getting the shot I experienced pains unimaginable, the anastegiologist agreed it went bad and gave me a second shot and the pain went away for about 10 minutes. After that I could feel all of the contractions and the doctors refused to help and give me anything else. I had my beautiful baby girl and 3 days later got to go home. Ever since I have been experiencing severe back pains, neck pains, and severe headaches that sometimes turn into migraines. So I went to my doctor and he told me that it was usual for about the first year. Sending me on my way with no tests done. OK so a year goes by, and I haven't had a doctor listen to me since. My pains are getting worse and no better. I need help PLEASE! I need to go to th doctor armed with information as to what this could be or he will just send me out again! I am tired of these pains and its very hard to even lift my daughter, on my good days. I experience these pains every single day! Sometimes I will even feel sharp shooting pains along the right side of my spine (where the epidural was). Please, if you have any information or have had the same experience, let me know PLEASE. Im only 23 and cannot live the rest of my life in this condition. Thank you.:confused:
