I'm wondering if any of you have had a ganglion block, and if so, was it helpful?
I have the beginning of RSD (aka CRPS) in my left arm in the area affected by the C6 nerve root. The pain and weakness is continuing to increase, and I think I am ready to go ahead with the ganglion block to see if it will help. I also have nerve damage and burning pain symptoms on the right side of my body, most severe at the hip/thigh/foot areas. If you have had a ganglion block, what were your symptoms prior to having it done, and how long did you have a reduction in symptoms from having it?
Just trying to weigh the pros and cons of doing it versus the risk involved with an injection in the neck.
Please share your experiences.
