I have pain in my back, could it be from an epidural?


Answer by  archangelsgirl (93)

Depending on how long ago the epidural was, it could. Pain from an epidural can last several years. Speak with a professional to find out for sure.

The only way your back pain could be caused from the epidural is if you have gotten an infection from the epidural catheter. If you have gotten an infection it would be from having the catheter in for an extended period of time. This is very uncommon in periods of 3 to 5 days.

No, it is not from epidural. You might have foot or knee problem which develop back pain and or poor standing and sitting position. Epidural is commonly used route for parenteral administration into the epidural space ( the area inside the spinal column but outside the dura meter)

My first question to you is did you have a baby recently? If yes then the pain very well could be from the epidural. This being said I would advise you to see a doctor soon as it could be something serious.

Yes, there may be residual bruising or swelling in the soft tissue at the injection point. There could also be other reasons. Consult with your doctor if it lasts.

Your pain could be caused by an epidural. This usually only lasts a few days. Most people experience back pain during their lives, so if your pain persists, you may want to see a doctor.

When I had my epidural I had pain in my back for about two years. Try yoga for back pain, or doc can give meds.

In Epidural-anesthesia: Anaesthetics-and/or-analgesiacs are-injected-into spinal-canal's-outer-most-part through a-catheter. If the needle hit something-sensitive, or was injected too-deeply or too-fast, it could cause back-pain. More-dangerous the-higher-up your-spine.
