Lidocaine Infusion

All,

So I had my first Lidocaine infusion today. It is awesome I basically feel like a million bucks! There were a couple hick ups during infusion. Those being my tongue/lips got a little numb and my pulse increased a bit. They just lowered the speed of the infusion and all was fine. I have not felt as good as I do right now in a long time. Not only my pain is subsided but I feel like I can actually think again. It's crazy I know but for some reason this stuff has helped my brain fog. So maybe our fog comes from the pain? I don't know I just hope it lasts! I will be getting infusions once a month for a year. So I will keep you all posted. Maybe I found something here I have tried many avenues of treatment none being successful as this Smile

It was a one time infusion. It took a little over an hour to infuse 280mg of lidocaine. I wish you luck and please keep us posted.

I have heard of this treatment for years, but have been reluctant to try it. I am very interested in your experience with it. So, I hope you keep us updated as you go through each month and each treatment.

I wish you the best and hope you find many reasons to smile every day,

Eric

i thought i would get treatment today but they postponed til monday. will keep u posted. didn't like the dr. much. he fluffed me off as having fibromyalgia regardless of my hundreds of lipomas, but he will treat the pain and maybe give me oral mexilitine, or some other pain management medications. i don't have prescription coverage though.

So sorry about your disappointment today. See my comments about Mexiletine in the topic entitled Mexiletine. I hope Monday produces better and less painful results.

No you really haven't missed much on the lidocaine. I am getting my 3rd infusion early next month. The second was better than the first and I have been virtually pain free for three weeks now. This has been by far the best avenue of pain treatment I have ever had. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

I have used lidocaine patches for about four years. They were prescribed to me by a doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. They have helped to relieve my pain with some of the lipomas. However, with one lipoma there was no relief. Finally had to have surgery. There were two lipomas growing side by side. They had actually grown through all of the tricep muscles. The surgeon said she had never seen anything like it.
