Lumbar sympathetic block provided me relief for only two days. I was in no pain in those two day. Should I get another one to see if I get longer reli?

In brief: Yes

Generally sympathetic blocks are done in a series to provide more sustained relief.
However if you are receiving enough relief after 3-4 blocks, then you might want to consider spinal cord stimulation.
