Pain block: So sorry for your continued pain. Please return to your physician and ask about the possibility of a pain block. There are several types that may provide you some relief. I have seen suprascapular blocks very helpful on several occasions. Please keep in mind that every case is unique and your doctor or a pain management specialist can help guide you.
