Health problems after C-section Epideral

edited 06/13/2015 - 7:56 AM in Spinal Injections
Hi. I had a C-section 22 years ago because my baby was breech. They administered an epideral and I immediately experienced severe pain down my spine and down my left leg. It was so painful that I had trouble catching my breath. They removed the needle and proceeded to do it again and the same thing happened. Approx 6 months later, I noticed my two middle toes started twitching and the toes would cross each other. I also started having neck pain and headaches. It was thought to be arthritis because my xray presumably shoes my neck being straight instead of a C shape. Ever since I have experienced constant calf muscle pain like a hot burning sensation down my same left leg and I have constant muscle spasms in same calf. It never stops. Muscle spasms are sometimes so vigorous that it looks like my calf muscle is rolling. I seem now to be experiencing what sounds like restless leg, because my legs ache and I have to constantly stretch them to the point of pain to somehow relieve the ache. I also have middle back pain. The leg I can deal with during the day because I am busy at work, but at night, I can't sleep due to the pain and muscle spasms. On neuron tin but doesn't help. I just try to get by one day at a time. I am 49 years old now and afraid how I will be when I am older. Leg is always sore and tender due to the constant workings if my calf muscle even with a muscle relaxer. This is all true to the best of my knowledge. Thank you for hearing my story.

    I feel very sorry to hear your story, but there are many such cases which are misdiagnosed and later leads to big complications. My aunt was misdiagnosed and was operated on the wrong leg. She went through a lot of pain and trauma. We then consulted an eminent medical malpractice lawyer [edit] and got all the claims and compensation .
