I had a epi with my son almost four years ago and im currently almost 39 weeks and have been having really bad back pain....How can i tell if its back labor or just side effects from the epi i had years ago? Ive tried taking hot baths i drink plenty of water im just confused on whats going on with my body right now.....

would you even have side effects from the epi that was 4 years ago now?
I had 2 spinals 2 years ago and I dont have any side effects that I know of

I've never had an epi, but my back labor started as a constant back pain that progressed to getting GOD AWFUL every 20 minutes then like 10 then 5... So it'll get worse intermittently just like contractions. Good luck!
