Pain in spine might be caused by epidural
had an epidural 7 years ago and suffer severe back pain now and then whats the cause and remedy for this
Occasional and transient (lasting few days) back pain may occur after an epidural. However, 85% of people experience back pain during their lifetime. The most likely cause of back pain in your age group is discogenic. Evaluation by a physician who deals with back pain may be helpful to figure out the cause and design a treatment plan.
