Arthritis in the neck

I have been diagnosed with Arthritis in the C3 spine and I am have a headache all day and still waiting to go to a pain clinic and physio

Has anyone had a local nerve block injection and has it worked ?

Have been off sick since Jan 2021 and now out of work because of the pain

Not sure of the type of Arthritis I have.

Any advise would help

Thanks

    Necks are just awful when they kick off @Colin300 aren't they?

    I have cervical spondylosis myself which flares up form time to time. Iv'e never had injections into mine, but many have on here. For the life of me i can't find any though this is the best I could do:

    Take care and let us know how you get on we need something up to date on the subject of needles and necks.

    Best of luck

    I have now had the 2 injections into my neck but not into the spine it was done last week it has made a difference but they say that it will take a few weeks for it to work .

    I have had a first appointment with a Chiropractor as well I am hoping that things will now improve over the next few weeks.
