Re: does epidural in childbirth affect ms?

I haven't been officially diagnosed yet but I felt like I should comment on this since I have had 2 epidurals since my symptoms started.

The only thing that I noticed was that the numbness in my lower back (at my tailbone) stayed around for about 3 months both times. It wasn't painful, just kind of un-nervingly weird! Eventually it just faded away.

Please keep in mind that I haven't had my diagnosis yet! Good luck to you!

In my studies epidurals are ok for people with MS. Spinal anesthesia would be something that most docs would likely avoid. good luck!
