I suffer from Chronic migraines I have been seeing a specialist for them he started giving me nerve block shots in the right side of my head right above my right ear. The last injection was in October 2011 by the middle of November I noticed a big indention starting at the hairline of my forehead and extending past the injection sight. Could this indention be from the injections? Will it ever go away?

Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

This may re-open the duct if there is not much damage. Surgery to reconstruct the passageway may be needed to re-establish normal tear drainage, and stop the overflow onto the cheek.
