Maracain Injections For C4,-5-6

Updated
Lea Says:

I suffer from cervical stenosis. My neurologist gave me an occipital nerve block with Kenalog, which is cortisone, in Feb./14. This made me worse. I went to see my physiatrist and said this was bad for the neck. He wanted to give me maracain injections, but I refused because I was afraid it would give me more pain. He said to go back in 1 month and he would give me the injections. I am skeptical and afraid. Did anyone ever have maracaine injections for C2-3-4-5-6?

Hello, Lea! How are you?

Marcaine is a local anesthetic, so it should not worsen your pain. The biggest risk with it is cardiotoxicity, so if you have a heart problem, you cannot take it.

Common side effects may include numbness, dizziness and vertigo.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi Vervom,

Thanks for the reply. Are you in the medical field? How do you know that maracaine is not going dangerous . I don't have heart problems.

Thanks,
Lea
