Has anyone come to any conclusions about this link?
I have been getting this numb tingle on my right side about 2 inches from my spine. I have searched through symptoms of others with back problems but I haven't found anyone with my symptoms of a numb mid or upper back. This numbness started about 8 years ago after my 1st pregnancy/delivery (w/epidural) & is back now after my 5th pregnancy/delivery (w/epidural). I had an epidural with my 4th delivery with no back issues...no epidurals with deliveries #2 or #3. I sleep mostly on my left side with my arm up under my pillow as I am always nursing through-out the night. The spot is under/slightly below my bra. I nurse alot and carry kids all day long as I have 5 under the age of 8. I also nurse while running around taking care of the house. It is driving me crazy! I regularly use a chiropractor. Babies #1 & #5 are my most fussy...like to be held upright ALOT. Any info would be wonderful!
I do have this problem. and still seeking for medical consult. My pain came from no where and after I correct my sleeping position (foetus way of sleeping), the pain is gone. However, the numbness still remain.
I looked up some medical info and they suggest that it's nerve pinch that causes the numbness. It's best to consult doctor. Back pain may means a lot of health issues.
