I am due to have an occipital nerve root block tomorrow morning and was wondering if anyone who has had this procedure also has Fibromyalgia. If so was there any response that I need to be prepared for from the Fibro.
I recently went to see a neurologist at his specialist headache clinic and he identified two causes of the pains I experience in my head. The first he has treated with the beta blocker propranolol, this has been effective and in two weeks I have only had two migraines. Previously I was having constant migraines having been taken off sustained release morphine. The second he said could be treated using a nerve root block.
I have read around some of the issues raised on HealthUnblocked and saw that many people report that they have not had a positive outcome. I have previously had a nerve block as a diagnostic in my lumbar spine, this was successful and helped identify peripheral stenosis which was operated on successfully.
