Burning, tingling cold feeling on your skin???

I just got epidurals for my lower back last month and a week or so later I have this weird sensation of cold, burning, pins and needles type feeling but no where near my lower back, its my upper back and feels like its on my skin.

Anyone had anything like this? Is it related to my bad lower discs? My doc cant see my till thursday so I'm trying to see if anyone else has experienced this

This might not have anything to do with my lower back or epidurals, I just dont know.

Did your doctor use fluoroscopy (live x-ray) to do your epidural? If not, he may not have gotten the medication into the right area. IF you get worse, go to the ER.

2 lami's, 3 fusions
bone spur removal
cerv. fusion, 1 level
morphine pump

He did but when he turned to get something (my back was turned) I felt a very sharp stab after the needle was already in and I screamed. I asked him what that was and he said, sorry, I hit the needle and it hit your bone while reaching for something.

My shot though was 11/9 and I started getting this about 3 or so weeks ago, I dont actually remember when it started and like I said its my upper mid back all the way around to my ribs.

It feels cold/hot and it feels like pins or needles are in my back and if I get goosebumps its much worse.
