Hi All, Today I went into the Advanced Pain Management clinic and had a diagnostic test done to see if it would be successful. They did a set of 4 injections into the back of my neck at the cerivcal level C2 & C3. I've had these injections before but this time they hurt like H#LL. I am suppose to have so much more relief at the base of my skull from the headaches and I must say it is helping the headache but it did put me into a HUGE flare. Like I said this is just the test and not the real deal...the radiofrequency nerve ablation is scheduled for March 20. I'm taking my Vicodin and laying low and I am starting to feel a bit better. But man, I go in March 20 for the real thing and I'm getting a bit scared at this point. I guess I will call the clinic tomorrow and discuss what happened and see if I would still benefit. Well back to my ice pack on my neck where they did the injections. I have found this helps the next day with pain at the injection site.
