Hi,
Epidural puncture per se does not lead to headaches. However, the headache could be a post spinal headache which is well known to occur after a spinal tap which might occur as a result of dural puncture. Though this usually goes away in a few days, it may persist in case the leak continues. There ways to fix that too and you should consult the treating physician in that case. On the other hand, it is hard to explain the tremors in left leg after the epidural injection. In case of persistent symptoms, kindly go in for a thorough evaluation.

I did miss type on my message. The infrequent tremors I have been are also on my right leg. Not my left leg as previously posted. Could that be related? My right arm (not so funny bone) and hand/fingers are still tingling and the pain I have is still here (along my spine/shoulder/neck). It has been 7 days from the date of the epidural. Maybe I need to be more patient?! Thanks for the interest and response.
