Hi Lina,
Thanks for writing in.
It is unlikely that the pain you are experiencing is due to the epidural anesthesia that you would have received during caesarean section. I would suggest the following:
a. Start exercising. You need to be walking for 50 minutes daily for 5 days a week
b. Lose excessive weight through a combination of diet and exercise
c. Avoid forward bending and picking up heavy weights
d. A MRI of the back ( particularly the lumbosacral region) would be needed to rule out a process which is impinging on a nerve.

I would suggest you see an orthopaedic surgeon at the earliest. This would be needed for a detailed examination and proper treatment.

Hope this helps.

Hello Lina,

You need to go for "MRI Scan - LS Spine" to rule out the possible causes like disc prolapse, nerve root compression, or any other cause.
