It's : It's difficult to answer your question without quite a bit more information including: 1. What symptoms do you have (i.e. Neck only versus arm&hand)? 2. How long have you had your symptoms? 3. What makes your symptoms better or worse? I would strongly suggest you pursue seeing a pain doctor as you likely have many treatment options. Good luck!

Ganglion blockade: Find a doctor familiar with sphenopalatine ganglion blockade which often helps where other methods of treatment, including surgery, have not been successful.
