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.
