Nerve Pain Injections-Linky

I am fortunate to live in Canada where we have good health care for the most part. This has enabled me to become a patient at a fantastic Pain Management Clinic. I go there bi-weekly to see a specialist who has taught me about my pain and is exploring methods to deal with it.

Please do not look any further if you have a queasy stomach…….needles are involved.




Hopefully I’ve left enough lines, for those with weak stomachs.

There’s nothing pretty about this.

Hubby was with me this week so I managed to get photos of one of the methods we’re trying, the photos pretty much speak for themselves.

 The doctor injects a Nerve Pain Block into areas he identifies from my pain reports.

Nerve Pain Block2So many places…and it HURTS!

So far the results are good, it feels like I’m numb from the dentist but all over my head/neck….but not everywhere and it’s often like the pain just moves.

This one is the worst for pain, I struggle to sit still.

What extent will I go to in order to relieve the pain?

Not too sure yet, if you’d asked me 2 years ago if I’d ever line up for facial injections I’d have laughed in your face!

I have hope and really, these are very cool photos to have to brag!

  1. How are they working? I’ve gotten lumbar epidurals, but they didn’t help much. Best of luck with the nerve shots. I hope you wind up pain-free AND have these kick ass photos to boot.

  2. Oy! Honey, I’m not sure I could do that – but I guess if the pain is that great, it’s worth it right? When I was trying to conceive ds3, I tried acupuncture – VERY difficult for me! I don’t like needles.

  3. I’m glad you’ve found something that works. I could not do this though. I can’t look at the t.v even when they are talking about getting flu shots!

  4. Ouch! I hate needles but had to look anyway. I am so sorry you have to go through this Julie! I hope these start to help alleviate some of the pain you are suffering. ((HUGS))

  5. This definitely indicates how intense your pain is. From a Nurse’s perspective, I can see the benefits…but I don’t know if I could bring myself to do something like this. I like giving needles, not getting them (even though I’ve had loads pierced and tatted)…
    Cyber Hugs for the pain!!

  6. While it’s not really a nice procedure, I’m glad you are able to get some relief from your chronic pain. So nice that you can take advantage of good health care there too!
