Ashkenazi et al (2010) stated that interventional procedures such as PNBs and trigger point injections (TPIs) have long been used in the treatment of various headache disorders. There are, however, little data on their effectiveness for the treatment of specific headache syndromes. Moreover, there is no widely accepted agreement among headache specialists as to the optimal technique of injection, type, and doses of the local anesthetics used, and injection regimens. The role of corticosteroids in this setting is also being debated. These investigators performed a PubMed search of the literature to find studies on PNBs and TPIs for the treatment of headaches. They classified the abstracted studies based on the procedure performed and the treated condition. These researchers found few controlled studies on the effectiveness of PNBs for headaches, and virtually none on the use of TPIs for this indication. The most widely examined procedure in this setting was greater occipital nerve block, with the majority of studies being small and non-controlled. The techniques, as well as the type and doses of local anesthetics used for PNBs, varied greatly among studies. The specific conditions treated also varied, and included both primary (., migraine, cluster headache) and secondary (., cervicogenic, post-traumatic) headache disorders. Trigeminal (., supraorbital) nerve blocks were used in few studies. Results were generally positive, but should be taken with reservation given the methodological limitations of the available studies. The procedures were generally well-tolerated. The authors concluded that there is a need to perform more rigorous clinical trials to clarify the role of PNBs and TPIs in the management of various headache disorders, and to aim at standardizing the techniques used for the various procedures in this setting.
Thanks for responding. I’m just a little stressed from having the sore nipples. I dropped my Test dose to 75mg ever 4 days. 20mg of Nolvadex a days and my right nipple is sore again but no bumps. I’m going to order the Red PCT and give it a shot. Would the 1 pill a day be good for water weight and estrogen or should I do the 3 a day? When I complete my Test cycle in a little over 5 weeks should I include OSTA for Post Cycle Therapy along with Nolvadex and Clomid for 4 weeks and if so should I start the OSTA the same day of last shot or along with the Nolvadex/Clomid about 18 days after my last shot. Thanks for you help.
