Nerve Block Day 3 Progress

The feeling has returned to the sides of my head and the occipital injection sites are swollen and tender to the touch. My neck and shoulders are sore. I’m rocking a 7. I took two Midrin and took a nap but no relief.  The supra orbital injections are still doing some good. My left eyebrow is still numb and my left eye is taking a little break. It is welcome.

It is raining today and warm… humid. My body aches all over. My husband has the Super Virus and I have caught it too. I’m congested and have a cough. This could be contributing to my neck and shoulder soreness. I’m trying not to let it get to me, but it’s totally getting to me.

To recap:

Thursday – 4, a good day

Friday – 6 and received nerve block

Saturday – 5 and the pain is more evenly distributed… not centered on my left eye, but still in the left side of my head. The right side of my scalp is completely numb and the left side retains feeling and tenderness, although less so but my left eyebrow is numb

Sunday – 7 and the pain is back in my neck in shoulders… my left eye is still not the full focus. Feeling has returned to my left and right scalp and my occipital injection sites hurt like hell. Oh, and I have a cold or something. YAY

Christmas is coming!

Nerve Block Day 2 Progress

After my yesterday’s nerve block the entire right side of my scalp was completely numb although the left side of my head received three times as much medication. Today both sides of my head have some feeling. I didn’t sleep well, but my left eye hurts less although I feel like I have a more general migraine, not centered on the left eye like usual, but equally distributed throughout the left side of the head. That tells me that the supra orbital injections have had some effect. The left-side seems to be numbest there as well.

I am not carrying the typical pain down into my shoulders. All in all I am at about a 5, all on the left, staying in my head, no neck or shoulder soreness, but the pain is not greater around the left eye. I was at a 6 or 7 at the doctor yesterday and a 4 before that on a 10 point migraine pain scale. Wednesday was a really bad nausea day and I was in the 7-8 range. 

To recap:

Wednesday – 7 to 8 with severe nausea

Thursday – 4, a good day

Friday – 6 and received nerve block

Saturday – 5 and the pain is more evenly distributed… not centered on my left eye, but still in the left side of my head. The right side of my scalp is completely numb and the left side retains feeling and tenderness, although less so but my left eyebrow is numb

We shall see what tomorrow brings.
