Can someone become paralyzed from Epidural?

Did you know that Epidural was inserted through a catheter? I thought it was a shot!

    Super rare. It goes into part of the spine that has no spinal cord and only goes into the space the catheter is soft. Not different than where a needle would go but far more comfortable
