So it's been a week and one day since the shot for my neck (C7). While I am happy to report that I've had no more migraines since, it's done nothing in the way of pain in the muscles as they said it would. Good bless my massage therapist, he does wonders.

I'm definitely going to check out the botox shots to see if that can't buy me some time as I couldn't consider having surgery for at least another 1 1/2 due to my husband's underway schedule. After that maybe surgery would be the best option. Always in the back of my mind is here we go again.....ugh!

On a positive note..... HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY! HOPE FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT CELEBRATED YOU DID SO SAFELY :o)

Hi Susan, sorry the injection only achieved partial relief, but no more migraines is great! Sorry you are living with this next surgery hanging over you. Look forward to hearing about the Botox injections. You sooo deserve relief after all this time.

ugh So sorry to hear about your pain, and shot in the neck how frightening. Praise God, at least it helped the migraines. :-[ on a different note, I'm in Virginia now- a conference for the Navy, but no rental car. but the flight caused horrible pain. too much sitting. sending you sympathy and empathy, but today it's a local call :-)

I'm so thankful I don't have my pre-surgery pain anymore....it's been traded for new pain but at least now I'm with doc's who can do things to help vs. tying to get into the docs I need. I've had trouble most of today with my trap and numbness going on and a pinched nerve but still no migraines so I'll take it. I have yet to me anyone who has had a shot and been very happy with the results....there's got to be someone they work well for lol.

I know when I use to travel I had a horrible time so I do not evny you your trip. Any thoughts of surgery soon or is it schedule?
