I had an epidural with my DD as wasn't handeling her birth to well, she was back to back and i was induced and it all became a bit of a shock to me so after 7 hours i opted for an epidural and loved it. Anyway that was 7 months ago now but the site were my epidural was put in is still sensitive if i push it and also if i sit in a particular position? Any one else expereinced this or should i get check out at doctors?

I would get it checked out. You really should not be experiencing discomfort 7 months after epidural. I must say though that my back is sore if I push it and I have never had an epidural. It could be a posture problem which physiotherapy could help.
