Hello I gave birth 9 days ago and was given an epidural. The day after I arrived home I started experiencing a painful numbness in my hands and arms. My hands can barely make a fist and stay numb, while the pain that shoots up my arms come and goes and varies in how numb and strong the pain is. Why is this happening, Is it due to the epidural? This was my 5th pregnancy and Ive never had this problem before.
