: Does anyone have information about nerve damage caused by epidurals during childbirth? I had a bizarre reaction to an epideral during child birth 19 years ago and began to experience periods of severe muscle weakness and pain less than a year later. Many episodes and years later after being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, I am going through investigations that suggest a diffuse neuromuscular disorder such as LGMD. Pending final diagnosis, I ask that anyone who has more information on the relationship between an epidural reaction and nerve disorders to please contact me at email@example.com.
I have been suffering chronic pain on my left side. Headaches neck pain shoulder pain pins and needles and now I have delevoped hip pain. This has been going on for seven years. I have been told I have a chronic pain syndrone myofasical pain It's all in my head and told there is nothing wrong with me. To me It's unbeleiveable how doctors seem to dissmiss my problems. I have discovered that things went wrong doing my birth of my son. The doctor could not get the needle in my back, it took 4 times untill he succeeded. Then right before they gave me my c-section they numbed me to far up. I was numb from the top of my breasts to my feet. I will not stop trying to find a doctor who will take me serious. Don't let anyone tell you that a epidural can not do nerve damage. I believe in my heart that the epidural has caused my problems. Good luck and if you need to talk contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
