A first epidural not to work or even stop working after working initially. I have a very busy OB anesthesia practice and can happen on up to 10-20% of attempts. Your daughter legs shaking its not related to the epidural. Most common post epid/ delivery complication is back pain. Legs going numb possibly not related. I will get a neurology consultation for a further assessment.

Specializes in Anesthesiology

Discussing with your anesthesia care provider, OB and/or possibly a neurologist is the right thing to do. Anesthesia medications used during labor are eliminated quickly from the body, and nerve injuries are almost unheard of and exceedingly rare. If you're within the first 1-2 weeks of delivering, traction on nerves from labor may be a possibility. Speak to your doctor. He/she will want to know.
