Up until a month or so ago, my neck has been fine. The ACDF's 1996 and 2000 took care of everything and the only time I had problems was IF I did something stupid.
But now I am having all sorts of problems with my neck. Some of muscle related some are disc related, some are nerve related, some are shoulder arthritis related... A good blend!
4 weeks ago, I had Acupuncture on my neck. The following day I started with miserable migraines, that resulted in my vomiting all day long. For a week I had strong migraines all day long and stomach problems to match.
My neck still was causing problems. Over the weekend, it was the first time in almost 30 years that I was thinking of going into the Emergency Room because of my neck and pain level. I held off and saw my Pain Mgt doctor yesterday. She saw how tight my neck and shoulders were with knots up and down my neck. Se gave me 5 trigger point injections, each one did relieve some of the trigger point knots. I went home and iced my neck the entire night. This morning I woke with a minor migraine which has been building all day. I called my doctor and we discussed it (Yes, I am fortunate to have a great pain mgt doctor, that not only returns my calls, but calls me weekly to see how I am feeling) She believes that both the acupuncture and trigger point injections set of my migraines. She is more concerned about some nerves in there that is allowing this to happen.
I am curious to know of other members here that have cervical problems, if they had problems after any type of injection
