lidoderm

Does anyone have experience with Lidoderm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> background-color: #dae8f4'>patches? I use three per 12 hour period along with oxycodone, tramadol, neurontin and flexeril background-color: #dae8f4'>for pain. All the talk about Fentanyl has me concerned. BTW I am so thankful background-color: #dae8f4'>for this background-color: #dae8f4'>forum, whether or not one posts one can gain so much valuable inbackground-color: #dae8f4'>formation without fear of judgement. Kudos to sandee background-color: #dae8f4'>for keeping it going and thanx to everyone background-color: #dae8f4'>for straight up honesty in your replies to questions.
Is anyone out there using lidoderm background-color: #dae8f4'>patches <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> and/or neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>? My neurosurgeon just prescribed them background-color: #dae8f4'>for me--they're a topical anesthetic background-color: #dae8f4'>patch. I tried one, it seemed to help briefly. I've been taking Lyrica background-color: #dae8f4'>for about a month, trying to taper off hydrocodone (after 7 months of steady use), and wondering why I have not seen these lidoderm background-color: #dae8f4'>patches mentioned by anyone in any of the back pain boards I've looked at. Looking background-color: #dae8f4'>for input on this. Thanks.
I'm sitting here now with a lidoderm <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> and the tens unit doing it's job on my shoulders and neck. I have to leave the background-color: #dae8f4'>patch on background-color: #dae8f4'>for a full 12 hours. I've got roughly two more hours to go then I take it off. I have to admit that I've yet to try the Topamax and it's mostly because of a drug interaction fear that I have to alleviate somehow.
Has anyone ever used a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> their TMJ <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>? have some Lidoderm background-color: #dae8f4'>patches, which contain 5% Lidocaine, which I have background-color: #dae8f4'>for my fibaro and spine problems. I just got back from Reno, Nv, which was an 1143 mile round trip. The trip down was fine, but the trip back today was in rain, hail, wind and snow. Needless to say now in more pain than ever. I had a massage while there, concentrated on the head, neck and shoulders. Masseuse commented I had a major major amt of tight muscles and knots.
Hi Sandy! My doctor also prescribed me the Lidocaine <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my hip and lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. (didn't have neck or upper back pain at that time) They only worked background-color: #dae8f4'>for about a day and they also wouldn't stick to my body but I just found out last week that I tore a ligament in my hip so that my be why they didn't work. I hope your dr.can find the right med that helps with your pain!
i've had back pain background-color: #dae8f4'>for a long time now. "severe curve in spine" degeneration in the curve. developing arthritis in neck/ upper back, the deepest point in the curve. narcotic pain relievers work background-color: #dae8f4'>for short term relief. don't want to get addicted to anything if possible. dr. wants to avoid surgery background-color: #dae8f4'>for as long as possible. have been prescribed 50mg tramadol once a day. doesn't help very much and with the continueing pain my life is very much slowing down and i am getting depressed.
I ended up having a severe flare up of my arthritis from the adhesive and it took a few days <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the symptoms to fade and get my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> under control. I was so happy with the relief I was getting from the background-color: #dae8f4'>patches at first and if this is just pain from the fall then I will get that level of relief back when these injuries heal. If not, then it is the adhesive and the background-color: #dae8f4'>patches will be out of the question. That will be a huge disappointment.
i'm telling you crazy kids... i've been in pretty bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> over a year... i just bought a book on how to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> free - 20 minutes every morn. is all it takes - and this kid is living proof. it addresses chronic pain in every part of your body, too - btw. it's not just background-color: #dae8f4'>for backs. if anyone wants to know about it, lemme know!
It is working really well <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> and neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, but I have the problem with the background-color: #dae8f4'>patches falling off. I've tried using medical tape to tape the edges down, and that has caused skin irritation so I have been looking background-color: #dae8f4'>for another alternative. I read online people have called the manufacturer of the background-color: #dae8f4'>patch (mine is by Mylan) so I did call them, but the adhesive that they have background-color: #dae8f4'>for customers is out of stock.
hi, i'm a 24yo male. I've been having lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 5 years now. And my doctors have given up, "We tried all that we could have done." Recently I've started noticing other things and not knowing if they are normal, - When I'm reading a book in bed, is it normal to feel fatigue, strain, discombackground-color: #dae8f4'>fort in my lower arms and shoulders? (after about 7-9min.) - I'm on my back, elbows resting on bed, hands up(holding book) -same when I'm on my side reading a book.
and I am looking into a bunch of that info and I have been doing kind of ok. But I still have it and so I'm looking one into the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> ...can't remember the name and then I will go see the doc on the rest....So I'm taking each thing slow now...I have backed off on walking since I'm doing so much around here and my son just went back to school and I'm not into a routine yet with it...So I will be working on that and I"m still working on my mood and my out look...
When I was first prescribed the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> it was by my PCP. I wasn't given anything <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> BT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> either. I found it worked great <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the first day, but on day 3 I was hurting badly. (I've currently switched meds many times to find the right one) You should be able to talk to your PM about BT meds, but not all of them are open to increasing meds in younger people like you and I. I've been going through CP background-color: #dae8f4'>for about 2.5 years and had epidurals, PT, etc.
I have either a cold or runny nose/sneezing w/d symptoms- who can tell? <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>/discombackground-color: #dae8f4'>fort I have been taking aspirin. You can try that or advil which is good background-color: #dae8f4'>for pain. Avil bottles will recommend two pills, however I remember that prescription Motrin (same as advil- it's ibuprofrene) is equivalent to four advil. So you can take that amount as long as you do not do it background-color: #dae8f4'>for an extended period. My back is my problem also. I get up and move around often.
I was recently diagnosed with PHN and am looking <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> some kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> relief. I'm on 300 mg of Gabapentin. Does Gabapentin work <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> you? If so, how long did it take bebackground-color: #dae8f4'>fore you felt any relief? Any other advice on PNH pain relief?
Hope they give me something besides opioids <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I mean what did people do <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> bebackground-color: #dae8f4'>fore they came out with these damn pills? Well, I guess I'll find out. Hang in there girlfriend. One day at a time, keep praying to God. I know you do...PM me if you need me, always here background-color: #dae8f4'>for you honey.
I do find that even taking a very low amount over 5 days has caused some anxiety but that I can handle. Heres to getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> on the train and not looking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>. Thanks <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> all the support and encouragement. I was feeling angry, guitly and upset about having to use meds but with all your help I made a plan and am sticking to it.
When in doubt, ask your doctor!
I have been told a hydrotherapy may help my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> but it hasn't been suggested <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I will look into the volt aren't and lidoderm and call my PM since I just saw him yesterday. Joey You are right pain meds don't relieve nerve pain and it is a pain like no other. I've dealt with it about as long as you have. Thank you background-color: #dae8f4'>for the info. I will look at the website. Thank you all background-color: #dae8f4'>for your suggestions.
oxycodone every 4 hours and Cymbalta and Clonidine <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I also have to prescription creams and a lidoderm background-color: #dae8f4'>patch. Initially I thought I could get my pain to a 1 or 2. Then I thought I'd be happy at a 3. Most days now with all the medications I'm on I'm at a 5 or 6, but there is usually some point in the day when it shoots up. Basically using it causes a flare. But with 4 kids and the ex no help, I don't get to rest it much.
I use the Lidoderm <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>patch</span> and love it. It really helps take the edge off. I cut it <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my hand. It was prescribed background-color: #dae8f4'>for "desensitization" of my scar on my hand, but I use it on my hip background-color: #dae8f4'>for really bad arthritis there. I have trouble with the stairs, getting up from a chair or out of car, and the background-color: #dae8f4'>patch really works well. (My dad also has a really bad back; herniated disks, past surgeries, and arthritis, and I put it on him, nad it helped. The nice thing is it's not another narcotic.
Any kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, etc?? The reason why I'm asking is because I was just admitted last week <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, stomach pain and kidney pain and they found out it was kidney stones, and a hernia. I was thinking that it could possibly be something else, especially if they didn't run any type of tests. As background-color: #dae8f4'>for the hospital, I agree about as long as you pay something. I'm in KS and owe the local hospital about 2,000 but pay 20.
