    If yes, what were your results? Side effects? Relief?

    thanks...

    I have tons of burning pain that is resistant to opiods.

    Hi, if you don't mind me asking, why are you doing sympathetic nerve blocks or considering them?

    I am just asking because they are considering them for me but not for the FM for the CRPS that I have also.

    Never knew it might help FM pain, please let me know

    thanks

    i'm not sure where you mean. I had them for spinal stenosis, twice, but neither time did they stop the pain. I go back to the pain clinic in 2 weeks to see what is the next step.

    about 5 years ago when i had a ruptured disc in my neck. or is what you are talking about like what they give people for child birth? anyway , my experience was wonderful.....pain free (neck anyway) just in time to have my total hysterectomy!!!

    good luck ...i think i want another one now as my neck is acting up again :(

    I've taken several rounds of cervical facet joint blocks and haven't had any measurable relief. I go back to the pain clinic the first week in May to see what's next!
