Nerve block

  • By lmektl

    Has anyone heard of, or tried, sphenopalatine ganglion injection/nerve block? This has been suggested to me and I wonder if anyone has tried it. Thanks!

    Hi nymom,

    I’m wondering who suggested this and what they’ve told you about it?

    Lidocaine drops is a good way to test drive to see if this might be helpful. Injections aren’t necessarily done anymore. There are a few newer methods to do this if it is really necessary. Most of the time it’s not that helpful, but for some patients, it can be.
