I had my third c-section in June 2004. During my epidural, they hit a nerve and I jumped from a jolt that went thru my entire right side. I felt the entire procedure on my right side, but no pain was present. Immediately after the surgery, I was in the worst pain ever. Then after a few hours I was back to feeling normal. Within a few weeks, I started having small speech problems such as stuttering. Then spring of 2005 I started experiencing back pains that would shoot up my spine when I turned my back. Are these symptons associate with the nerve being hit during my last epidural? Should I see a doctor about future problems?
It seems likely that your speech problems are not related with a previous spine injury. Back pain might be related with a spine injury. You can consult a neurologist and a neurosurgeon for help diagnosing and treating these symptoms.
