Hi
I have MS and Rheumatoid Arthritis and also Fibromyalgia. I had an epidural nerve block today and have a very fuzzy head since then. Is this normal or could it be to do with my MS as the Doctor said there was a slight chance it could cause a relapse of my R & R MS. I would appreciate any advice Thanks!

Hello,

If your fuzzy-headedness persists for more than 48 hours, you should call your doctor. Our MS nerves are very excitable, so I suppose it's possible that your body is rebelling a bit from the invasive nature of a nerve block procedure.
