How was your epidural experience?

I had a spinal block with my second (I had planned to go natural, but my labor stalled out because I was so tense from super strong pit contractions), which isn't exactly the same thing, but the hospital I deliver at didn't do epidurals at the time. I HATED it. It did help me relax and progress faster, but the next day was miserable. I had a reaction to it so my entire body itched like crazy. I had a horrible headache and backache, and I couldn't keep anything down. Most of which I've heard can be similar to after effects of an epi.
