I get my care at the VA. At my last visit the neurologist p.a. who saw me gave me an injection in the occipital area of my neck of lidocaine and a steroid. said it helps some people to have fewer migraines. Has anyone here had this injection? If so did it work for you and do you have any concerns about having this treatment? Did it help?
My concern is that I don't know what the long term effects of steroid injections are. I think you are suppose to have these every three months. I am not sure that migraine is considered very serious at the VA, more like a nuisance illness and that this is just another method of making it seem like someone is doing something but not really. I'd be interested in hearing if anyone here has had experience with this treatment.
