Thank you for your question. Your pain could possibly be due to nerve compression in your cervical spine which is causing this pain. Since you recently gave birth three months ago, and if you received epidural anesthesia you may be experiencing side effects of this procedure. This occurs when cerebrospinal fluid leaks out of the site of injection of the epidural. We cannot comment any further on this because we do not know your entire medical history. It is for this reason we are recommending that you follow up with your doctor and have a thorough examination performed to determine the cause of your pain.
