So I had an occipital nerve block on both sides of my head on Monday and was told there would be some short term pain in the areas due to the aggravation of the nerve. It's now Thursday and for the last three days the back of my head, neck and shoulders have been incredibly tight and achey and I've had to be very careful with my movements to prevent sharp pains in the back of my head/neck.
The doctors seems to think this is standard and I just need to take it easy but I wasn't made aware of this at the hospital when I had the injections. It does appear to be easing slowly but still very uncomfortable and I have had to take time off work as I cannot sit upright at my desk.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Thanks in advance!
