    Woo Jun Shim , Skylar Remick , and Chong Kim, MD.

BACKGROUND: Long COVID can impact patients with a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health symptoms, lasting for months to years despite recovery from the acute infection. One of the symptoms is headaches. Post-COVID-19 headaches can affect the quality of life for many patients, and as a result, the management and treatment of the symptoms have become important issues.

CASE REPORT: We present a case series of patients with varying presentations of post-COVID-19 symptoms, including headaches, who responded positively to the use of stellate ganglion blocks (SGBs).

CONCLUSIONS: We report the successful use of a right-sided SGB for varying post-COVID-19 symptoms.

KEY WORDS: Long COVID, post COVID, post-COVID headache, headaches, stellate ganglion block, case report
