Discussions that mention lidoderm

Pain Management board

Hey ladybuggy, The burning type of pain you describe is a difficult one to get relief from. I know I have read here on the boards that lots of people have a hard time finding a med that works.

Have you ever tried anything topical, like a numbing agent? There are patches that contain Lidocaine, called Lidoderm and they require a prescription. I really don't know if they would work, but I would think it might be worth a try. Other than that, I haven't got much else that I can think of.

Hang in there and please keep us posted as to what the doc says. I wish you luck and will keep my fingers crossed for you. Take care, CMP/MM
