      @Stargirlcj I had my first infusion done last month and it helped for almost a week. Then it wore off. I’m scheduled for my next one next Monday. Did you get scheduled for your first infusion yet?

      I have looked into it but the cost was too much for me since it is not covered by insurance. $500 an infusion

      oh, you're talking about an infusion my bad. is it for chronic pain? can you let me know if it's of any help? i really need to look for other options than opioid medications for my chronic pain bc they're not helping anymore.

        @mars00 yes, it’s for chronic pain. I had my first infusion done last month and it helped for almost a week. Then it wore off. I’m scheduled for my next one next Monday.

      i've had lidocaine a bunch of times when i've required sutures to numb the area, and also at dentist for a filling. the injection is sort of painful (stinging/burning sensation for about 10 seconds) so if you're sensitive to pain i recommend maybe clenching your fists or taking some deep breaths. do you mind me asking why you need it?

One user mentioned their experience with Lidocaine infusions, stating that it worked for them for about two weeks. They described it as a "chill pill for your nerves" since fibromyalgia is a nervous system problem and the infusion gets the Lidocaine right to the nervous system. However, they also mentioned a supply shortage making it difficult to obtain at the time.
