I'm pretty sure I've seen this is where the trigeminal nerve starts and will give the benefit of the doubt that the attempt is to stop feeling things where the onset of a migraine starts in the electrical wave rush that precedes that. But they found no such waves starting with us. What is the rational for giving a shot back there for? We feel no pain there during an attack so it's not stopping anything that way. We presumably don't have a wave of electricity rushing from back there to begin with so it's not preventing anything. It seems more like a doctor is putting 2+2 together to get 2.
