You can have exacerbation of symptoms.
Dr. Mitchell Zeitler

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

As a matter of fact there is no one anesthetic that is preferred as each has its risk and benefit (epidural vs general, for example).
The important point is that you should have a complete history and physical prior to the epidural and be monitored closely during and after the procedure.
