3 days ago · Arthritis in neck and lower back in Bones, Joints & Muscles

The shots are cortisone but I did get a nerve bloc in my thumb and it didn't work either. My PC thinks it's the arthritis on the nerve in my spinal cord that is causing the headaches. She suggested a nerve bloc from a pain doc but since the others didn't work, I won't get one. I see her today to go over blood labs.

I have not contacted my neurosurgeon as my PC said it was arthritis where the nerves leave the spinal cord. Do you think I should still check with him or his staff? The MRI showed the meningioma hadn't grown. Thanks

Wow! You have been through a lot. I am afraid of surgery as I have such a low IgM and am fighting a yeast infection under my breasts caused by a mammogram. The dermatologist could see little cracks in my skin from the pressure of the machine. It has been 6 weeks. I had just gotten over the 8 month infection at the Gamma pin site. Gamma surgery is 240 lasers aimed at a brain tumor. Mine is a benign meningioma. I will ask my PC about physical therapy. Thank you and I hope you have a healthy, pain free New Year. Joan

My MRI of neck shows arthritis in the area where the nerves leave the spinal cord and it is causing a constant headache. I am taking CBD with a little THC and it is helping but sometimes the pain is really bad. I sit with a heating pad on my head and that helps. Do any of you have this and if so any suggestions on how to cope with it. My PC is suggesting pain management for shots but I have had shots in my feet and hip and they don't work. So I don't want them. I have a low immune system and just got over an infection at the site where the pin was screwed in for my Gamma surgery. It took 8 months to get rid of the infection. This is in the same area of my head but my PC doesn't think it's related. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Joan

The MRI showed arthritis in the area where the nerves leave the spinal cord and my PC thinks that is causing the headaches. But the headaches are right at the pin site. The pain is severe at times and I wonder if the neurosurgeon hit a nerve when he screwed them in. My PC wants me to see a pain doc for a nerve bloc but I have had them in my hand and feet and they didn't work but they did hurt so I don't want one. The meningioma is stable. Any ideas?

Thank you. I appreciate your help.

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

An MRI showed arthritis wrapping around the major nerve that comes up to the top of my head. She wants me to see a pain management doc and get a nerve bloc but my cardiologist doesn't think it will work. I take CBD & ThC and that controls it. Have any of you had this and did you get a nerve bloc and if so, did it work?

Nov 8, 2019 · pain in my breastbone, ribs and chest in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have been diagnosed with costochronditis and my chest swells. The rheumatologist and my cardiologist say there is nothing they can do about it. I have had to go up 6 sizes in my bras or I can't breathe. It has been going on for over 2 years. It will go away and then come back. Now I have pain under my left breast but the docs say everything is fine. My pulmonologist says I have arthritis in my ribs and my PC did an MRI of my head and neck and the arthritis is wrapped around my major nerve, causing a constant headache. She suggested I see a pain management doc and get a nerve bloc but my cardiologist doesn't think it will work. Any ideas?
