After suffering the indignaties of a wrong diagnosis I was admitted to the hospital after my wife throwing a fit to do so, discovered my self diagnosis was right,ruptured sternum and shattered ribs from the wreck, My neuro sent the Anastesiologist in to see if a nerve block would stop the intense pain, he said the area was too large and sugested and epideural with a constant drip of pain med, I questioned if this might trigger my clusters into starting back again after such a short remission and the first in over 30 years, he became so upset the he signed off on my case just at the thought that I would question such a possibility. when my nuero came in he seemed mad at me because I choose to be educated and make informed decisions, so here is a poser to the board, has anyone ever had a spinal epideural drip in the c2-c3 area without headache as a side affect?
