Pain Management board


I've had some minor relief with Lidoderm patches in the past. I think they can be beneficial for pain that is not really deep tissue or joint related. In my opinion, they probably aren't as effective alone, as they are in combination with other methods of pain management, such as meds, therapy, etc.

Just be careful if you have sensative skin. They can sometimes irritate the skin a bit, especially if you place them in the exact same spot repeatedly. Best of luck. I hope they give you some relief. CMP/MM
