I'm sorry you are having an increase in pain. If there was a steroid in the nerve block it might cause a pain flare-up for several weeks afterward. Hopefully it will calm down soon. Maybe your doctor can prescribe extra pain medication for now and you can use alternating heat and ice for pain relief.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.
