Nerve Block Injections

Hi I have severe nerve pain from the top of my spine and neck which causes extreme pain in my neck shoulder and right arm. I also have a painful pulling sensation in my neck. Can anyone advise if this injection will help with the pain as my mst, gabapentin and oramorph are not working?

Someone Please Tell Me About "shots."

Someone Please Tell Me About "shots."

I've gotten steroid injections at specific target.
I've gotten nonsteroid injections for general area.
Not supposed to come back for 3 months. I've always been ready to return at 2 months.
NOW I've been sent on supposedly for epidural (numbing the whole spine?) It supposed to be good for a year?

Ablation

Ablation

My doctor has been testing my nerve respons via putting me in a light sleep then poking my nerves with lidocaine type injections. Then I post how long they lasted i.e. 1 hour to 2 days. Now he wants to do several ablations both lower back and cervical (different sessions). Has anyone had success with this?

How To Reduce Pain When Injecting Cimzia Into My Leg?

How To Reduce Pain When Injecting Cimzia Into My Leg?

I took my 3rd set of 2 Cimzia injections last night. I have no pain when injecting into my stomach. When I inject on my leg, however, I experience pain as the medicine goes in and it takes longer inject the medicine (as if there is resistance to emptying the syringe). Anyone else have this experience when using a syringe injection? Any recommendations?
