This has been bugging me for over 10 yrs. I never got answers as to WHY this happened to me, but now I'm starting to wonder if it's related to MS. With both of my children I had difficult births. The first one I had to have an emergency c-section, the second child I had a vbac, but the baby was stuck and I had 15 stitches!!
Well, soon after I'd arrive home after having both babies, for about two weeks I would have these horrible seizure like episodes. It would start out as a back spasm, then travel up my neck, into my head, and from there it was unbearable pain. It was so bad each time that I ended up in an ambulance off to the ER. Both doctors couldn't tell me why, but just told me sometimes women have funny reactions to the epidural. I haven't had my MRI yet, so I can't say if I have lesions on my spine, but could there be a relation??
I also want to know so if I have to have a spinal tap in the future. I don't ever want to have to go through that experience again.
