Question: burning sensation in lower back

 bd89 - Mon Oct 26, 2009 6:48 pm

For the past 2 months i have been getting a burning sensation pain and it tingles a little bit too in my lower back beside my spine in the same area where i had an epidural 11 months ago when i had my son. but it last for a minute or so and then it comes back a couple minutes later. And its everyday all day. i don't know what i should do.

User avatar Hello,
Your report of burning and tingling in the area of epidural after pregnancy is not too uncommon.
In general, post partum low back pain can occur in the sacral or sacral iliac area and/or epidural area.
Treatment is conservative: ice and hot packs, NSAIDs, and exercise as tolerated.

If the symptoms persist, see your physician.

Take care.
