Anyone get relief with occipital nerve blocks- trobbing headaches

constant for three years with facial pain, problems eating. Have been getting tmj treatmenst with no relief, Weak R. arm. Seen NS today and he is sending me for a occiptial block. No neck herniations but DDD and bone spurs. Also a DX of MS for 15 years so I'm never quite sure if the arm and leg pain and tingling is from that or not. Am on Valium- I am schedules for the shots next week. I also have been thnking about prolotherapy. Thank you.

Re: Anyone get relief with occipital nerve blocks- trobbing headaches

I do suffer from migraines. Have for years, on and off. But I've always had good luck with oral meds. Are these nerve blocks supposed to be temporary or permenant?

Too bad Jon (Conductor) isn't around. He has suffered horrible migraines and I think clusters as well. You might try doing a search of this board to see if there are old threads re: the blocks.

Good luck. I hope they can give you the relief you need. Take care, CMP
