Just want to say hello - Im new on the Forum tonight, and will explain all the problems tomorrow when I get back. But to give a brief over view of what I have just been offered.

  • Welcome to Spine-Health and hello. A nerve block is usually diagnostic to see if a rhizotomy (nerve burn) is going to be helpful. I assume you're having nerve issues due to stenosis or pressure from a disc?

    I look forward to hearing more of your story and being able to offer support and help, if possible.
