Has anyone tried the stellate ganglion block for treatment of pain or PTSD? Did it work to relieve symptoms?

I believe in 2004 I had a series of 6 ganglion blocks.and they did very little help. I have had chronic pain since 2003 and so many procedures, but I do recall those and they were of little help. It was done in the doctor office and wasn't painful. It was my second year of trying medications and procedures to decrease my pain.
