So I had my nerve block yesterday... is it normal to have headache day after? Or could it be due to how het-up I got before procedure and lack of sleep?

I think anyone who goes through the procedure would have a headache. Add in stress, lack of sleep and anticipation and you have the answer.
Hope it has worked
It is not normal to have a headache after the procedure. stopmychronicpain.com/lumba...
For me its the dehydration, stopped water at 7am, had procedure at 12, by then I was absolutely bone dry, face flushed etc. Was even worse after hysterectomy last year and ordered a sandwich for later and couldn't eat it my mouth was so dry, just couldn't swallow, had to drink loads. It could be the dehydration, than can cause a headache.
Can I ask what the nerve block injection was for please?
I've had 2 block nerve injections for migraine, but the procedure doesn't require any fasting or anything. Maybe because it's in the back of the head.
Would be interested to know, as I suffer with constant back pain also.
Kind regards, Catmag
Mine was for back pain L3 down to S1
I have a recurring slipped disc L5S1, sciatica and facet joint arthritis and degenerative disc disease at l2, 3 and 4. It was three weeks ago, the pain from it is beginning to wear off now but was surprised how much it hurt after, thought I'd made mistake having it done but I'm finally changing my mind as think it might be working now
