Hi everyone,

So I had another RF done the 30th of last month. He decided last minute just to do the right side C2,3,4. I go back next month and have the left side done. He wants to work on getting rid of this headache before working on the rest of the neck and back. This RF didn't seem to do much. We shall see. lol

Anyway I've had facet injections, medial branch blocks, bilateral occipital nerve blocks and Botox and nothing has worked yet.

He mentioned trying a spenopalatine ganglion block. Has anyone had one done? I'm not overly thrilled with trying having something shoved up my nostrils.

Ouch, never heard of this one before. What is the success rate of this particular procedure? I would have a ton of questions and really would have to think about this one, sound scary to me. Lets hope when you go back next month the RF's will kick in and take care of things.

Take care....Susie
