      @Cully Oops… i was trying to edit my comment but I accidentally posted it. I wanted to add that it is more of a subtle pain relief but i can definitely tell when it is time for my next IV. The medical school of SC started using lidocaine IVs in the early 2010s I think. Worth a try if you dont/cant use opiods. I get very very sick from any NSAIDs so this has been a real God send. Hope this helps

      Hi all! New here. I’ve had severe chronic pain with fibro and neuropathy for 9 years. I rarely see this listed anywhere — Every 4 weeks I get an IV of lidocaine. Kinda like the novacaine you get at the dentist. It definitely takes the edge off. No “high” from the meds. And I still get some severe flairups. I usually get a little drowsy and take a nap in the afternoon after I get my IV. I AM RE

      I used to take Gabapentin but supposedly the long term use is really bad on your brain. So I stopped. Tylenol does very little.

      I was given tramadol. Did not help. Now taking hydrocodone. Takes edge off of pain a bit. Minimum dosage.
