Re: Lidoderm Patches

what is your exact pain generator? the reason i am asking is in some cases, depending upon just what is actually generating your pain, if this is used during the day and you have 'numbed" the area with lido, you can further injure yourself only becasue you are not 'feeling it' kind of thing? BUT, on the other hand,if this is a pain in a particular area that it would not really matter, like i use them for a nasty pain syndrome that is just part of my skin now,then i would most definitely use them if it holds back being productive, during the daytime. there is also a form of lido ointment(5%,the same as the patches) that can also be rubbed into the skin to help too.

but actually just knowing what the lido was Rxed for would really help in giving you the very best advice in how to use them. lido is my best freind now, it just works sooo well for my type of pain and has since 2003. **
