Can Sympathetic Nerve Block procedure help/cure tachycardia/angina/vascular issues as well as pain that I've had after traumatic drug reaction?

I am not quite sure about if it will help in vascular issues as you have not specified about what veins and what kind of vascular problem, I also cannot answer about your traumatic drug reaction as you did not indicate what type of drug was involved and what kind of reaction. ...Read more
