Re: Topical Ketamine Treatment

I would love that stuff, or any other equally good cream. The lidoderm patches are ok, but the peeling off and getting caught on things make it a drag if one is leading an active lifestyle.

Re: Questions of numbness/tingling

Textbook. Two of my fingers are totally numb to the touch along with that side of my hand. And if the mass (legion) and the area around gets touched, it's like electricity. Even the wind hurts.

Re: Crps/rsd

Also, try lyrica instead of neurontin. IMO it works way better.

Re: Sitting down

Try those lidoderm patches. They really do help, for a while at least. And easy to get from your doctor. Expensive though if you don't have insurance.
