I had the pain block done yesterday in C2 and C3 and Oh my goodness did it hurt! I did get sedated but this time for some reason it did not work too good because I did not feel relaxed at all. Anywhoo, it did hurt real bad and I did shed a few tears. My neck is very tender and sore now, which is too be expected.
The purpose of this procedure was to see if I was a good candidate for the next procedure, which is to burn the nerve endings so that I no longer feel the pain of my head, neck and shoulders. I do have a tension headache now, but I don't feel it is my normal nerve type headache, so I feel there is still a chance this procedure was a success.
