I have been told by my doc that one way to permantly try to fix my cluster headaches is occipital ablation. I have recieved plenty of occipital blocks with marcain and they stop the pain for about 4 hours but seem to wear off very quickly. That creates a problem for me because I have a 24\7 headache that has lasted for almost 5 years now and I am sick to death of taking morphine and not being able to function. My problem is that my Neuroligist wants me to find a doctor who will do the procedure. What kind of doc would that be? Who can I call in Utah to try to get this scheduled? I have read all the pro's and con's and I'm willing to take the chance to find relief from all this pain and confusion. Please someone tell me who I can call to get this show on the road. I have hurt way to long to have the yellow pages block me from any kind of relief.
