Hi, I have had two facet joint nerve blocks. The first one I was numb for a few hours, not days. That one lasted about three months.
I just went for a second injection that doesn't seem to be taking at all. It has been a week and I still have a lot of pain. I didn't get any of the numbing effect this time and wonder why?
My Dr. has ordered another injection that I haven't decided if I am going to do yet. The last injection was more painful than the first. And it was in a different area too that I need to question.
Can you get a injection in the same place twice? First one was right and left side C-7/T-1 and the second one looked like the injection sites were one on top of the other?
I'm tired of the pain and quite frustrated because the injection worked the first time and not the last. I'm not wanting to go through that again for no less pain.
No, I'm not being a baby because I do have a high threshold for pain, I just wonder if the outcome will be worth it.
