Has anyone ever heard of this? My neuro actually gave me this treatment a few weeks ago. He shot me up in two nerves on the right side in the back of the middle of my skull. I thought it was a reasonable try, and I trust my doc alot, and he did say it was something new, so I said, what the hell, why not? Needles don't bother me, right? I give myself an Imtrex shot twice a day for weeks at a time. Well, he made me lay down on a table face down and stuck two freakin DAGGERS in my head! I thought my eyeball was gonna pop out! It hurt like hell. But, as a clusterhead, I have a real high threshold for pain, and I only cried for a few minutes. At any rate, it did nothing for me, positive or negative. But he did say that it broke cycles in others and I was wondering who here had heard about it.
Let me know.
