    Cancelled my Lidocaine Shot

    I had an appointment this afternoon for my rhumy to do injections into neck - I am so afraid and was having panic over it that I cancelled my appointment - I am in so much pain all over today - he wants to see me wednesday to go over other options - i think he wants to put me on topomax - has anyone tried this for pain all over ? I do also get horrible tension headaches - it may help with that but not sure how it will help with my entire body feeling like i got run over by a bus

    I take topamax for migraines along with many other meds. I also get the trigger point injections, lidocaine, every 28 days. The topamax has never helped with all over pain... The injections, as long as the hit the trigger point, does help. I won't lie, if they hit the trigger point, it does hurt somewhat but it has not stopped me from getting them. I usually get anywhere from 5-8 every 28 days like clockwork. Sometimes they work for a couple of weeks and sometimes a couple of days depending on how bad the pain is and how the a flareup may be. It has been more worth it than not.

    Hope this helps somewhat. Hang in there. Jenn

    When my physician did injections, he always numbed the area beforehand with "hurt-no-more" spray. You still feel the stick a little, but it isn't so bad. You hurt yourself worse when you stub your toe. You may reap some real benefits from the injections, so you shouldn't let fear grip you. If you had trouble with cortisone (I wasn't sure if you meant you had a bad reaction to the injection or if you had a bad reaction to the cortisone), you could ask your doc about botox injections. I found this helpful as it keeps the muslces quiet for several months, but it does wear off and you have to undergo a new series of injections.

    Blessings,
    Kirstee
