I took the plunge last Thursday by submitting myself to having the Greater Occipital Nerve Block injections. I was warned that they would be painful, that I would probably experience some numbness in my head and that the anesthetic would wear off after 24 hours leaving me with some pain and that I would probably get a migraine 48 hours after the injections.
The injections were virtually painless (just the "scratch" of the needle going in first time), I didn't experience any numbness, I got a migraine about four hours after the procedure and another 48 hours afterwards. Apart from that, I've been feeling great! I'm wondering if this is a case of "no sense no feeling" or if I was injected with a placebo!
I was also warned that two little patches of hair (about the size of a 5p piece) would fall out in due course. I wait in doubtful anticipation!
