I'm sorry but can't take it anymore. Can you type like a 49 year old instead of 15 year old using text words. I can't understand half of the things you say. I don't mean to offend you, but I can't understand you. If I can't how does anybody else? Not laughing out loud!

Hope I Help

when u had your epidural,and after they removed the tube,it is possible that they nicked your spinal cord.if that happened spinal fluid can seep out into the pockets in your spin,which can cause swelling.u bending over may have agrivated it,and is now causing u pain and swelling.u need to go see your doc asap.  hope i helped
