Unhappy lidocain iv anyone had this done?

I went to a new doctor that specializes in fibro, he suggested a lidocaine iv. he said that is will help for about 3 weeks and that insurance will pay for it. Just wondering if anyone has tried this before and what your results were. So tired of fitting this trash just want some help. I've had fibro since the early 1990's and it just keeps getting worse.

Re: lidocain iv anyone had this done?

Neither have i, ive heard of lidocaine patches, which are called lidoderm patches which i do use, but never in IV. I would suggest you do much research in this method before allowing it. Ask other doctors what they think of it as well. Id rather be a bit too cautious, than not cautious at all hon. Maybe others here have heard about it and have more info on it. Please take care.

Re: lidocain iv anyone had this done?

I've also heard of the patches but not an IV. Unless you are talking about an epidoral shot that is given in the back for pain. But not sure what drug is used. I would question also...
Good luck

Re: lidocain iv anyone had this done?

I live in the UK and had a Lignocaine/Lidocaine infusion last year. It did'nt help me at all and made me very poorly as well.

I only tried it as had everything else going and reacted to them as well so this was a last resort.

In saying all that it may help your pain levels for a while.

Only you can decide.

Re: lidocain iv anyone had this done?

Ummmmmmmm........this sounds a little scary to me. Sorry - not meant to scare you but just never heard of this. When I hear iv I think needle into vein and through your system right? Maybe I'm just not understanding this right? I don't see how they can do this with a numbing medicine??
I would look into this further if it were me. Maybe he meant shots? Like cortisone or something?? Interesting, would love to hear more.
