I know a lot of you have had experience with nerve blocks. I realize that results are highly individualized, but I was curious if anyone has had a similar experience, or heard of this happening.
I had my first block done a little over a month ago and was thrilled to receive the most significant and longest period of pain relief out of anything that I have tried in the last year and a half. I had a second one done last week and got no relief, so we tried again this week, and still nothing (although theoretically, the relief could still kick in over the next day). Granted I'm not sure I got a full block the second time, but the third time the block was as good as, if not better than, the first one, judging by the extent of a secondary syndrome induced by the block. I responded to the first block within several hours, but its now been several days since the third...
What I don't understand is why one one block could work so well, and another doesn't work at all. It's extremely frustrating and disappointing (to put it lightly). Has this happened to anyone else?
