Had my epidural done yesterday at 4pm and I haven't been able to sleep since then. Wasn't able to sleep last night being that it was my first one and I was super nervous so I should be exhausted.
I am also in some pain and discomfort. It feels like there is major pressure in the area they injected and my right leg feels weak and has been going in and out of numbness. Also my lower back and butt region feels very numb and my pain levels haven't lessened yet. (Although they told me should take 2-3 days to feel full relief if I am not one of the lucky ones who gets instant relief)
My question for those who have had these injections done would be- is this normal side effects other people have felt or should I be worried?
Going to talk to the nurses and Dr tomorrow of course but be good to hear from those who have experienced this injection before.
