Is an Epidural safe even with prior back injury?
#1
Is it safe to take Epidural when you had faced vertebral column fracture (long back)

This is something I would consult with my doctor about. I had major back issues and a pinched nerve and I had an epidural with no problems, so maybe you can too.

Epidurals are overseen by a doctor and an anethiatist - as long as both are aware of your medical history, which they will be - you won't be offered anything unless they know you and baby will be 100-percent safe. I would also do what Peebs suggested and ask your doctor or midwife for advice if you are concerned about alternative pain relief.
