Just wondering if anyone has had mixed results with nerve blocks. I've had several before which did little to nothing but at least didn't make things worse. I went for a shot 2 weeks ago because my doctor wanted me to try it again and because this doctor uses an x-ray to guide him which none of the others did. The shot really hurt a lot more than any of the others did. I was hoping that maybe that was because he hit the right spot, however since having the shot things certainly aren't any better and I'm sure that the pain is worse. I'm scheduled to have another shot this Friday and am really on the fence about getting it. Really scares me to have things get any worse as I'm already at my limit of being able to deal with the pain even with pain meds. I also have a foot problem that will require surgery and has become very painful and difficult to walk. Just wondering if anyone else has had these shots and had the first shot not work well and had the second work well. I really don't know what to think or do at this point. Any advice would really be appreciated. Thanks.
