First epidural in 1998 was done without radiopathy. Dr claimed he gave me 5 times ad much numbing medication, my right leg should of never moved while injecting neefed, 5th attempt caused my right leg to jump off table with severe electrical shock starting at hip existing through foot. 20 min later, had server check pains. Spinal headache, unable to urinate properly for over a week. Created new leg pains, unexplained Electra shocks in legs, bug like crawling, nunbnrss in feet, legs, butt. Now have bought s of unexplained shoulder and arm pain where it's difficult to drive, constant back pain, leg psin, blurred vision, floaters in eyes, bad nerves. Had 24 epidurals after that with no known proplems. I have never been the same since that first epidural. Was diagnosed with arachnoidtis 15 years aho, but mysterious new drs don't see it on recent MRIs. No drs will admit to ant pre problems with arachroditis. I have had all the symptoms, but yet to be updated on why I have so many issue's. VERY DISGUSTED!
