tingling /numbness on and off in back after c section

Postby lillylou10 » Mon Oct 11, 2010 9:50 pm

Vegas Nights
Hi girls
I had a c section 5 months ago & had a spinal block - it was my second section in 18 months, the previous was also a spinal. In the last couple of months I notice on and off during the day a tingling numb feeling that lasts a minute or two around my shoulder blade. It does seem worse if I am standing for long periods or leaning over feeding DD. I should add that my oldest child is well over 2 stone and I regularly carry her up and down 2 flights of stairs! Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Trying to establish in my own mind if it might be spinal related or is more likely repetitive strain from lifting/carrying babies.. Thanks :thnk

Sounds more related to the lifting and bending you are doing with your 2 little ones! Whichever the cause, you need to pop in to your local physiotherapist and get this seen to. They will do a full assesssment and be able to tell you what's wrong, as well as getting you back on the road to recovery. These kind of problems only get worse if you leave them!

Yeah i think a PT appt is a good idea. I only had one CS so far but I only have numbness on my belly above the scar (which has improved recently). Good luck!
