In the other thread I mentioned possible stroke/nerve damage. Anyways, today I saw my doctor and the MRI was all clear (He was the second doctor to agree). Then he pulled out this very LARGE needle and said "I'd like to poke you with this." It was a nerve blocker of some kind. He said the pain in my hand would subside. It did...but 12 hours later, it's coming back ever so slowly. He said that treatment could last a few weeks, a few months or even longer. Has anyone ever had this. Also, the knot I felt behind my left shoulder blade disappeared after getting the shot.
pain management can be a most difficult process. with these new findings re: your response to the block he may try a different technique next time
Really? Damn...well, his clinic is literally called "Pain Clinic"...although I'm sure the Japanese here don't understand it that way.
was it a cortizone shot? I heard those hurt like a biatch. I was going to have to have some injections in my knee.
Where exactly was the injection given?
I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
