I had a nerve block done in my neck a few days ago, however I am still experiencing a dull shocking sensation in my right arm that I was experiencing before the surgery. Some of the pain is also coming back. My doctor said it would take a few weeks. I am scared. What is going on?
Hi there. There are various nerve blocks done like therapeutic nerve block to treat painful conditions where local anesthetic is injected to control acute pain. The effect may have worn off that’s why the pain has returned. Review with your pain physician instead of getting concerned. Take care.

Is this common, what do you suggest.
