Hello, my name is Cynthia and I have been treated with Occipital nerve Blocks for over a year now. The worst side effect I can think of is having the yellow betedine on my neck the next day. It's difficult to wash off. I have no pain...maybe a little soreness but mostly great relief from the tremendous pain I suffer with on a daily basis. I also have Botox type "B" injections, but they make me sick the day after...flu feeling.

What are the side effect of the bilateral occipital nerve block of the brain?

I don't know the answer to your question but I just had an occipital nerve block today. They used freeze spray before poking me and it still hurt like hell. There is a horrible pressure and pinching as they stick in the numbing stuff. I am now 4 hours out from having it. I am very sore and can barely turn my head from side to side. I did it because I've had a headache for about 7 days now. My doctor will not prescribe pain meds so I'm basically forced to try things that hurt like heck. Hope yours goes better than mine.
