Re: Can EPIDURALS cause spine or nerve damage?
I had epidurals and had some problems right after them that I didn't have before, but different than yours. I had a large herniated disk, L 4-5, and pain going down my left hip, down my leg, and walked with a limp, with my foot turned out. After the shots, it was like the shots partially shrunk the disk, but unevenly, because depending on how I sat, it would change sides and the symptoms would be on my right side. The shots did not help me and I ended up having surgery in the end. I would suggest going to a neurologist and having your back checked out. I don't know the reason for you having the shots, and only have experience with a herniated disk, but if you have had no back problems before this, it could be the cause. Good luck to you.
