Nausea after epidural
I just had my second epidural for back/leg pain. Last time I was fine, this time I have nausea all the time. Is this normal?
It is rare to get nausea just from an epidural steroid injection. Sometimes, medication given for sedation during the procedure or for pain relief after the procedure may cause the nausea.
