6 days ago · Chronic migraine relief suggestions in Chronic Pain

I get occipital nerve blocks. Mine last 3 months. @deniseleann, your 6 months is out of this world wonderful. This goes to show that not everyone will experience the same results but, some relief is better than no relief at all. I would suggest asking your doctor about this also.
I have to add that I also get an auricular nerve block at the same time, as my pain is in 3 distinctly different regions. Good luck to you.

Sat, Jan 11 8:50am · Need advice: 20 year old daughter, high heart rate, dizzy in Heart & Blood Health

I have a fast heart rate called tachycardia. I was told that over 100 is considered fast. At sleep I was 164. I saw a specialty cardiologist called an electrophysiologist. There are several tests they dId to diagnose tachycardia. There are also different procedures they can do to correct this. I luckily only have to take a medication twice a day and my heart rate is now down to a range of high 80’s to low 90’s.
I was told it would not just go away on its own. I was mid 60 when diagnosed. Not sure what difference age makes.
Personally I would ask about a cardiology visit and ask if they know of an electrophysiologist. A cardiologist should be able to help you with this. Good luck to you.

I think you should get that checked with your dr. My GI always tells me that if I have black stool I need further testing for blood loss. Good luck to you.

Dec 16, 2019 · Botox for migraines side effects in Chronic Pain

@cindyhas123 I tried Botox a few years ago for my head pain. It didn’t work for me. After going to the Mayo in Rochester they figured out I had 2 different types of neuralgia pain. I get 3 steroid shots in my head every 3 months. That works for me. They’ve asked if I’d want to ever try Botox again. I emphatically said no way. It didn’t work for me before, why would I think it would work now.
Of course medicine can change a lot in a few years. But, they haven’t presented me with any evidence that Botox would be better than what I’m presently doing. Who knows, maybe my current treatment will quit working and I’ll have to rethink my options.
Hope you can find some answers.

Contact the Mayo patient services office. I have read that other people have qualified for financial help so they could receive medical services there.

@davidadams123 do you have a school counselor you can talk to, or a school nurse or a teacher?

Nov 8, 2019 · pain in my head in Chronic Pain

@jmb73 I get three nerve block injections for pain in my head in three different areas. My pain scale was at 10. The nerve blocks WORK and for me they last about 3 months.

Nov 8, 2019 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

@amazingteal I have a similar sensation and pain in my left ear. Neurologists at Mayo in Rochester literally spent decades trying to treat this with meds. They finally diagnosed it as left auricular neuralgia. I get an injection every 3 months that blocks the nerve delivering the sensation and pain to the ear. I say every 3 months because for me I get relief for that time period. They are actually surprised that this works for that long.
Hopefully this gives you some insight.
