SPG Nerve Block


Recommended Posts

I had a SPG done at a pain clinic. The process was with a new type of applicator which went way up my nose, both sides and then lidocaine was dripped on nerve. I went through ten treatments with no results, except for the fact of knowing this procedure would not work for me a chronic. It even aggravated my evening cluster. The doctor was kind of dumb founded that it did not work. This is just my experience with this process. Peace

My husband has had many SPG nerve blocks. The new applicator they're using is called the TX360--what I think razorPP is referring to. The applicator does seem more effective than using the swab method. The docs used Ropivicaine vs.Lidocaine b/c it lasts much longer. In the beginning the block lasted maybe 3-4 days and after about a couple months (had the nerve blocks every 10 days or so) he would get maybe a day or two of some relief. The type of relief he got was usually a dulling of the pain bringinning the KIP down a couple notches. He also recently had the occipital nerve block with no relief.

Hope you find some type of relief!
