I've been getting nerve blocks for the past 5 years. Which nerve do they want to inject. It feels a bit more than a regular injections as its going into the nerve. All of mine have been done in office. Its take just a bit for the area to go numb and can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The injection shot is usually pretty tender for a few days but nothing major. I've had the occipital, supertrochea, stellate ganglion, as well as a few other areas I'd have to look up. Sometimes they help, sometimes not but I've known folks who got great relief for awhile from them.
Hope this was helpful, if you need more, post again
