Finally had an appointment with the neurologist today after countelss meds have failed and chiropractor has been unable to fix me.
Basically I have muscle damage along with the whiplash. During the accident my muscles in my neck were stretched, and my occipital nerve was irritated and is inflamed which is causing my migraine, neck pain, and inflamation.
He went ahead and gave me an occipital nerve block on both sides. I have no relief yet, in fact I feel worse, but have heard that it could take a few days before I feel relief.
Is anyone familiar with Occipital Nerve Blocks? How long does it take to feel relief? How long does the relief last?
I hope so much this works, because I am going on 6 weeks of constant agonizing pain.
