I Have Had A Pain Block Injection In My Ackilies Tendon. Has Anyone Else Had It? This Is My Second Night Without Sleep Thank You All

I Have Had A Pain Block Injection In My Ackilies Tendon. Has Anyone Else Had It? This Is My Second Night Without Sleep Thank You All

I have a thickening of my Ackilies tendon. After several things were tried in my right foot I had three "craving" down operations they have up as there was too much scare tissue to do more
Now the left leg has begin to do the same thing. This ;pain block".is the first thing they have tried. I had an anesthetic injection followed immediately by this pain block injection which was put in and moved around for around 5 minutes before being taken out. It was done in an ultrasound suite so the doctor… read more

I also had the block and it really didnt do anything. I also had the injection by a specialist that burns the nerve x3 and that didnt touch it either. Nothing works.
I have now had both my knees replaced and put about 25 pounds on because of covid I've been just sitting and now my hips are sore and so is my sciatic so you can't really win. I lost my pain specialist that was so good and I had to go to see a new doctor and he doesn't want me on any kind of opiates because you know I might get addicted he'd rather see me in pain. Thank you what a nice man. I also only get about 4 hours sleep at night if I'm lucky and I don't normally go to sleep until about 5 in the morning. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic pain so apparently I need sleep 2 help heal myself it's not helping me at all. I feel for everybody that has this kind of pain pictures unless you have pain and you know what this pain feels like you can't even begin to imagine. And these doctors that think they know what's best don't have a clue. Take care everybody stay safe

@A MyChronicPainTeam Member
How are you doing now?
hope not anymore nights like that one
Those kind of injections worked wonders for me after getting through it...they've given you the best treatment first i think i hope it works for you a regular nerve block injection was given to me once a month the one under the scope was only once it hit the spot immediately but i did have very severe muscle spasms that gradually subsided
Breathe deep Dig deep it's that awful pain i feel you and pray that all feels better days to come with minimal pain clove tea is good for pain also Garlic
God bless pain less
much love many hugs πŸ€—β€πŸ“ΏπŸ™‡πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

I have felt like 6 months of relief with these injections is a gift from God! It's not magical complete relief, but Wow! 6. Whole. Months! My doctor gave me sedation and they are guided by ultrasound. I get the ablations and I get them in multiple areas. So for about six months, I'm going in at least once a month for injections. I pay my regular co-pay and I'm on Medicare. According to the receipt from insurance that I see, it's no where near $16k, it's expensive, but quite a bit lower than 5 figures. They don't work for everyone and every doctor may not burn the exact right spot, but if they work? Truly, 6 months is a little miracle from heaven!
