Hi All,
Besides having my lumbar sympathetic block on the right side, i also had the stellate block in my neck for my right hand pain. This time is different from the first time. When the injection went in, i felt pain going along on right side of my neck and shoulder and also down my upper shoulder. I did not experience this the first time. The pain in these spots have slowly fading away, but it is still there. I had found 3 injection spots on my neck. Did that mean they have missed the first two times. This time, the doc let his resident tried to inject on me. God, i hope no long term side effect. I could not drink any liquid w/o chocking until 10 pm tonight although i had the injection 11 am. I had also lost my voice until tonight. I think i will need to insist not to have the resident try to inject me next time.
I would appreciate any feedback from those who had the stellate block so that i can learn what is normal and what is not.
Thanks alot and take care!
