Unsteadiness After Spinal Epidural

I have had 8 epidurals over the past 2 years for lumbar stenosis, and after each time, my unsteadiness increases and doesn't seem to wane. Has anyone experienced this also? I am 93 years old; so do have some unsteadiness anyway. I use a walker.


  • Wow 93 and still getting around so well with your walker. Good for you! I just had an epidural 6th in 2 years and at times I feel little tremor in my leg and I use a cane for my walks anyway to keep me steady as I have some weakness in one leg.

    Does the epidural help though besides the unsteadiness? Let your PM Dr. know of your concerns. Do you have any disc herniations or just DDD? Hope you're feeling better soon. Take care. Charry
