    Trigger point injections during pregnancy?

    Hi!

    I haven't been to this board in about seven months, but I still see a few familiar faces. I am nearly a year post-op for a c5-6 fusion. The surgery was successful in that it did relieve the radiculopathy and weakness in my right arm. I had less luck with muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders. I have degenerative changes at adjacent levels which may also contribute to ongoing spasm. Have just started having some right arm tingling.

    I am now 31 weeks pregnant and pretty miserable with muscle spasms and cervical headache. Have any of you had trigger point injections during pregnancy? I am going in today for lidocaine injections, but the pain doc won't do steroid injections. I can't tell if this is just a CYA kind of thing, or if steroid injections actually pose any threat to my baby. I've tried to review the medical literature, but have found contradictory messages.

    Many thanks,

    Em

    Woo hoo! I just got permission for steroidal injections. Now I'll have to see if the doc can see me tomorrow.
