: Hi I am very sorry to hear others have also had epidural complications. I will not be able to say much at this time, legally gagged. However After may YEARS I am in a wheelchair and in great amounts of pain and spasms I have generalized dystonia from an epidural that was placed in too far hitting the S1-nerv root area. If there was burning and numbness in the toes and lower leg
: (especially the LEFT side) in my case, I had the same feelings and it was becasuse it did nerve damage to the s1 nerve root area NOT ALWAYS WILL such things show up on MRI's/ ct-scans/emg's.... so it is indeed frustration beyond belief!!!!!
: God bless and I pray that others will recover from this !!!!
