Injection c5-6

I'm going for my first injection on Wednesday.
They are going into c5-6 since the dr. thinks my Severe headaches are
coming from this area Due to bone spurs among other issues.
Never had this done. Didn't realize I'll be under anesthesia.
Nervous, but want to keep moving forward with this.


  • Is this the selective nerve root block? I had it done about 4 weeks ago or so and the process went very smooth. All I felt was pressure and it was over quick.

    ...and it was the best decision of my life :-)
  • I had a facet injection, it wasn't pleasant but not bad enough to have to anesthetize me. It did flare up my pain pretty bad thought. You'll be fine. Just hope it works and it gives you relief.
  • Thanks for your comments......It's not a nerve block, I think it's an anti inflammatory.
    I don't mind the twighlight anesthesia. I really don't want to feel a thing! !
    I've been reading so much about these injections and it sounds like the majority don't
    last ......but I think it's a step I have to take. It won't get rid of the bone spur!
