Back Pain Lock Rss

I had a spinal when I delievered my DS by C-section, 8 months ago. When the spinal was admininstered I felt a sharp, intense pain in my mid-lower back - almost felt like an explosion in my spine.

I still have pain in that area, I can't lay flat on my back, and if I bend over I experience pain, but unless I do either of these, it doesn't worry me at all.

Is there a healing time for spinals, is this normal? After 8 months I'm thinking it maybe time to see my GP?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. There can be some lasting effects of an epidural or spinal anaesthetic. These can range from localised tenderness to consistent headaches. Any ongoing problems need to be assessed by a doctor so it is best to see your GP.
Best wishes,
Alex.
