Hi, I read an article a long time ago about how some drs were trying out lidocaine on a q-tip or sprayed in the nose for treatment of the “ice pick” migraine. I was desperate one day and tried it- I went and go orajel and put my q-tip in the bottle then put it up my nose….pretty far. I actually numbed that nerve! It was amazing. I talked to my dr about it and he was supportive , but couldnt really prescribe for it.
I have recently seen the SPG blocks and tried them for about 6 months.
I do not get any more relief with that than my q-tip method!
Anyone tried this? I am not suggesting you do it- it is dangerous to stick a q-tip anywhere! but….has anyone tried this technique and the SPG? What do you think?
