Hello. Has anyone had one of these? Anyone have one after microdiscectomy? I am 3 1/2 months post microdiscectomy and having issues so they are scheduling a sympathetic nerve block and just wondering if anyone had any experience with this? Thank you.


  • Saw this post had been sitting for a while. I've had nerve blocks before and they are awesome for diagnostic reasons. Here's a quote from an article on Sympathetic Nerve Blocks.

    I hope this helps.

    Chronic pain conditions often involve malfunctions of the sympathetic nerves. These nerves regulate blood flow, sweating, and glandular function. Blocks of these sympathetic nerves can provide important diagnostic information, and can also lead to a reduction of the pain.
