I asked for something to calm my nerves prior to the epidural which was given but Dr did not wait for it to work. I feel that the epidural was placed too low but would not know this without seeing my records. When the epidural was placed a nerve was hit and the Dr said that I had jumped, I only jerked when he hit something. I felt a tense pain down my leg. It stopped working when I got to a 6 so I asked for more meds but they kept saying that he was busy.Ever since then I have had hip pain, trouble walking, trouble sleeping, my right leg and left foot randomly go numb. Also I can not sit nor stand for long periods of time I will get intense pain in my lower back. One day I had to wait an hour for my husband to get home to help me get up out of a chair while holding a infant with a toddler.
