My Pain Management doctor did bilateral branch blocks on me yesterday morning to C-2 thought C-6. He numbed it, no sedation and then did the blocks. If it hurt as much as it did yesterday with numbing, I sure wouldn’t want to do it without numbing, that’s for sure!
He sent me home afterwards to do my normal routine. On the spine Yahoo groups that I belong to online, everyone kept saying afterwards to rest, yet he told me to go home and resume my normal routine. I was very tired all day, so didn’t do as much as I should have.
The back of my head was numb all the way to my shoulders. Felt weird! I slept all night last night. Woke up this morning, numbness was gone. Was in less pain and no headache until about noon today, then it started being painful again. I have appt. in the morning to see my Pain Management doctor.
I’ve had doctor appts. every morning this week, except today. Was good just staying home today.
