In brief: See your doctor

Nothing you have said is cause for immediate medical concern but if you want to get to the bottom of it, you should see your doctor. I know a lot of women have concern that the epidural is cause for their back pain.
However, research suggests this is not the case. In general, a labor epidural does not cause chronic low back pain.
