Anyone ever tried this? Any input would be appreciated - can't do meds, physical therapy is making it worse instead of better - getting desperate!

Yes, I have many times!!! - Absolutely brilliant for me gives me a couple of weeks pain break, some people get a lot longer, everyone responds diferently.

I find that it is lovely not having so many meds for a couple of weeks or so, makes me feel more myself. I used to look forward to that two week break every 3 months!!!

I don't need it now as I have something more permanent called the 'Occipital Nerve Stimulator Implant'. I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

I wish you all the best with the nerve block.

Take care
