  • Glad you made it to the hospital in one piece. Do hope that the lidocaine infusion helps you and you wake up tomorrow morning a new person. Fingers and everything crossed for youx

  • Hi joed, glad you made it to the hospital ok, and that the infusion went ok. Hope you get a good sleep and wake with less pain in the morning. Perhaps see how you feel in the morning and we'll confirm meeting up details? Gentle hugs, Julie x

  • Morning joed, how are you feeling this morning? I will be outside the Central Hall at about 10.50am, see you there? Hugs, Julie xxx

  • Hi Joanne

    Sorry to hear about your upsetting experience on your journey to your hospital, hope you have calmed down a little now, it does indeed shake you up!

    I hope/pray that the Lidocaine Infusion works for your pain. I hope you don"t mind me asking but I have been on Lidocaine Patches for many years, I use on the worse effected areas of pain but I have never heard of Infusions before?

    Please could you kindly let me know how you get on with them? I sincerely hope they help your pain & give you much relief from insidious pain that comes with Fibro?

    I am currently on Slow Release Morphine & Oral Morphine, Plus the Lidocaine Patches, plus Pregablin & lots of other Medication but still in Chronic Widespread Pain! I finally shut my eyes @ 5.30am today due to pain preventing me from sleeping!

    So I would be extremely grateful for any feed-back you could kindly give me? Please feel free to PM me if you wish to?

    Good Luck

    Many thanks

    Sending you positive, healing, soothing energies

  • I was given lidocaine trigger point injections but they did not help.
