Anyone ever have this?
I got C2-C3 injection a month ago, which didn't do much....the next step with the physiatrist is C1-C2. He said there is more risk with this one....but he's done about 10 of them and never had complications.

    Hello did you have ur injection, can u tell me why ur needing it? I'm going to get another hopefully in the next month. For occipital neuralgia I had 1 and 2 fused I think its been about almost 25 years now. I'm have chronic pain for about 5 yrs. Had everything done including a spinal nerve stimulator. I feel like I'm at the end and going crazy..

    Heidi....I'm having it do to due to having cervical headaches at the base of the skull.....on the left side...almost behind the ear. They took a xray pointing at my mouth and they say that the joints look stable/normal and nothing is collapsed. But it could be some sort of inflammation.
    I had C5/6 and C6/7 done a year ago. This pain is higher up and existed prior to the surgery. It didn't go away post surgery either.
