    Talking wondering about lidocaine patches

    i would love to hear from anyone who has tried the lidocaine patches. my doctor said they could take 2 weeks to kick in. do they help? i have a herniation at the T7-8. any info would be greatly appreciated. the epidurals have been a failure and the pm doctor said facet and discogram procedures are out of the question. he said they wouldn't help. he also said no to surgery. what else is there?

    thanks
    kathy

    I recently started using the lidoderm patches,, I have a ruptured, and herniated disk. The patches work wonders on my pain, I also take 100mg kadian 2x day.
