... I am not sure of the type of block, Sharon mentioned a lumbar sympathetic block as the possible one. Right now I am not in physical therapy. The pain doc said if the blocks work then part of the nerve should be removed. ... (2 replies)
... r that did not believe that I had anything wrong with me. I am now wheel chair bound. I pray that they caught yours early enough. That is the key. I have had two sympathetic nerve blocks and a radio frequency treatment to no evail. I am in stage two and headed fast to stage three. It is very disheartening. You will be in my prayers! ...

... Hi Wiired. I wish I could give a positive response, but I had only very limited relief with lumbar sympathetic blocks (they followed much the same pattern as you've described for your SGB) and no relief from SGB other than from the direct result of the local anaesthetic (an accidental sensory and motor blockade - so I not only had a sympathetic blockade, but also a numb and...

... Hi I am scheduled for a third block in a few weeks (SGB since my RSD started in my shoulder) and my PM doc said he would start the lidocaine concurrently. I'm not sure I understand what will be involved, I need to call his office and find out how all this will work. The weather has been atrocious this winter in the NE, one flare just leads into another. I don't know... (32 replies)
... Tigerlily, I'm sooo very sorry to hear that you're suffering so much. I've never had a block, but my pain has been very nasty for about 5 days now.

Have you thought about... (32 replies)

LOLOL Having SIP means you most likely won't get any kind of relief... (32 replies)

I would experience the same thing when I would come home from PT.. I went for two yrs straight.. Everytime I would come home the pain would start... I kept telling the therapist.. He just...
