My Neurologist has just recommended I have this jab. He did so last time I saw him in 2004 but I chickened out at the time! Since then I've had a nerve block prior to a GA for an op on my left shoulder and also two steroid injections in my right shoulder which "cured" that stiff shoulder problem. I didn't get any ill effects after any of these jabs, but have been a bit scared by what I've read about after effects from GONI for migraine. However, as I have been having frequent migraines (without aura) and take 15 or more Zolmitriptan per month (2.5 mg wafers) and have had this problem for more than 40 years, I'm inclined to give it a try. I would love to know if this jab has helped anyone come off overuse of Triptans - which is the ultimate goal (of course!)
