Hi,
I have occipital nerve blocks every 3 months for pain that radiates from my neck up the base of my skull. I have severe shoulder and arm pain also. The trouble for me is in my neck. I had a fusion done July 05 and the pain never subsided and , in fact, is worse. I had a spinal cord implant done Sept. 06 to help with the arm pain. It does help when it is working properly. I am going to have revision surgery next month to fix a migrated lead. The best treatment for me has been the nerve blocks. I hope you find your answers soon. Take care, Mcarr
