Yeah, I had them bilaterally in 2005ish. I just posted about Dr. Atasoy. It was outpatient at the Jewish Hospital in Louisville, KY.
At first it made my scalenes and shoulders and arms worse but it did give a little relief after a few days. Not much but I was in very bad shape then. Next was Botox to the scalenes. It helped quite a bit.
I was advised to have brachial plexus but yet can't find a doc in eastern KY that will do them. We have some pretty good docs here so that threw up a red flag for my anxiety.
They're all risky. Not adverse it them, though. You have to do what you have to do.
