Lidocaine and inflammation

Common Questions and Answers about Lidocaine and inflammation


Avatar n tn It has 10 weeks now and I have been given three instillations of heparin, DSMO, and lidocaine. I take utira-C daily and watch my diet. I find that a half of a dramamine or a tsp. of diluted baking soda helps as well. IC was suggested, but no other inflammation in the bladder had been seen. I am thinking of asking my urologist for elavil and stim treatment(tens ?). Do you have any other suggestions of what to ask for when I go for my next instillation on Friday? Thank you for your time.
Avatar f tn good morning everyone, had my decompression and crainiotomy last february and still have issues going on. severe pain on the right side of my head and fine motor skills and weakness issues on my left side of my body. constant ringing in my ears, coordination issues, sleep issues, i could go on. so i see dr marmura at jefferson headache center in pa.
773755 tn?1328123377 i started a two week initial course of 20mg prednisolone - not sure if generic or name-brand. anyway i am usually resistant to pharmaceuticals but the pain was unrelenting and dr and i finally went for the steroid. i have adrenal insufficiency, for last 3+ years. i've so far found it relieving that inflamed feeling so i can now walk a bit better. great. it has disrupted my sleep - DOES THIS SETTLE?
1702615 tn?1421815848 Physical therapist said Morton's neuroma, didn't show on films but I guess they don't, went to podiatrist who gave me an injection of lidocaine and cortizone. Shot helped for 2 days and no further. Began having chest pains on left side of chest on a daily basis, random short sharp pains...also onset of GERD, and diagnosed with it via barium swallow.... and tingling in mid left back, almost constant always same spot.
10977101 tn?1414282594 so he refered me to get scoped at both end to check for crohns disease and any inflammation in the bowels. the results came back normal. he then diganosed me with ibs and gave me meds to help the pain and help me poop. and told me what to eat and not to eat. which the meds didn't help and eating a lot of fiber didn't help and made the pain worse. and i continued to be underweight. it was getting frustrated that i was starting to get depressed. because nothing was giving me relief.
166496 tn?1236185912 This can help with the inflammation and pain. It doesn't work immediately and may not take the problem away completely but it should improve your symptoms. The bottomline is that as long as you're still on treatment, you're at risk of this problem coming and going. Let's try the steroid paste. Ok, how do I do that during the day when I am supposed to drink water like a fish?.........
Avatar f tn She found an esophageal stricture, possibly due to esophagitis, and performed a dilation. Some inflammation was found in stomach and part of duodenum. Mild gastritis, etc. Several biopsies were done, once again without thinking anything major is going on. I have to take Prilosec and come back, etc. The reason I'm mentioning all this on the forum is that I've had the sensation that my stomach valve doesn't always open and close properly as I'm eating.
Avatar n tn Everyone keeps telling me this is normal due to an increased volume at the injection site which is causing inflammation around the nerve. But, I have been on NSAIDs for 5 days and wearing a lidocaine patch on the injection site with no relief. Please help. I am terrified this is permanent. I just feel like no one is listening to how serious this could potentially be.
612876 tn?1355518095 The specialist who treats my POTS says he doesn't want to send me to another specialist for the pain just yet because he's already got me going with a couple other specialists and wants to just focus on a few things at a time. Grrreat. My GP says he researched the type of pain I'm having (tactile allodynia and hyperalgesia) and he doesn't think there is anything they can do to help me. Apparently there is a drug approved to treat it, but I can't take it because of my other medications.
Avatar n tn The surgery was done only recently (is this correct?). Pain should be expected until the swelling and inflammation have subsided. At this point, skin tags do not necessarily need immediate intervention. However, if there is any irritation or swelling noted concerning these skin tags then your surgeon may opt to remove them. I suggest that you seek referral to a pain management specialist. Are you taking adequate pain medications for these?
1794671 tn?1338798991 My Dr told me that the entire surgery was complicated due to extreme amounts of scar tissue and inflammation, the anesthesiologist couldn't do a spinal due to inflammation in my back and inflammation there also they did a spinal/epidural combo. It was very stressful and painful to know how much my body is messed up, the anesthesiologist thought I had been in a car accident or had back surgery because it was so messed up.
1558471 tn?1331225635 In February I had a cortisone injection in my shoulder joint. (That day and evening I had tachycardia for 11 hours). Three weeks after the injection my PAC/PVC started to reduce in volume. Typically I have 8,000PAC and 4,000PVC a day. I was only having about 1000 a day. This continued for 6 weeks. :) My shoulder was feeling better and my heart was calmer (except for SVTs). Yea! For the last two weeks the inflammation in my shoulder has been creeping back as well as my PAC/PVC.
927194 tn?1244114104 I have been to the pain clinic twice so far. The first procedure they did was a steroid and lidocaine injection into my sacro illiac joint, and all that did was increase the pain in my hip tenfold. I couldn't walk for over a week, even with the medication. A few days later, the doctor decided to do another steroid/lidocaine injection, but this time in the lumbar region of my spine.
Avatar f tn it helps a lil hearing others have this problem. the dr gave me percoset and lidocaine cream and niether helped so i just deal with it. most times im in tears esp when my hip pops. i myself have fallen due to lose of balance and my goofy dogs under my feet. i hope u get better soon ill be thinking of u. if my dr dont call me tommorow bout my mri im calling him.
Avatar f tn You might also be able to use Lidocaine jelly to the perinuem and around your urethra to relieve some of the pain. We would often do this with little girls, why not big girls? We use Lidocaine mouthwash for severe sore throats. Another idea is to use regular baby ointment on the other areas that are burning, like desitin or zinc oxide. It's a mess, but I suspect you wouldn't care. If numbing the areas doesn't work, then it would lend evidence that this is indeed, a neuropathic pain.
Avatar n tn drank A LOT and I mean a lot of water. Took advil for the pain and inflammation and I rested. Don't use skin topicals with alcohol in it - that only dries the skin. Go to health store ( independent or Whole Foods) and get a skin spray with Active Aloe in it. Also a spray with lavender is good too. Take Epson salt baths. Use Cool wet paper towels. Apply gentle lotion (like Aveeno) if / when you can touch your skin, as you don't want skin to dry out.
Avatar n tn I had the Merina IUD inserted a week ago and I am still experiencing heavy cramping and spotting. I have been told by my OB/GYN that the Merina is safe for women who have never had a child and that these symptoms will subside. Does anyone out there use the Merina who has not had children? If so, what are your experiences with it?
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
488823 tn?1218374167 I'm close to 70 years old and I guess this will be my last chance as he put it, so I'm very concerned with the outcome and what to expect during this 3 month although I still might be on the old medicine beyond this 3 months. I'm going on my second week on thursday and I'm not feeling too good. My urine has changed color like I never seen it before and I feel bad all over.
476246 tn?1418874514 but for you to be having swelling, joint pain and inflammation and warmth to the joints, combined with stiffness, doesn't sound good, I'm sorry to say :(
1508881 tn?1313118501 Neuritis Neuritis is an inflammation of the nerve with pain and tenderness that lasts three to six weeks. This can occur in 10 to 15 percent of patients. Neuritis usually goes away by itself. If it doesn’t, the doctor can inject a local anesthetic along with a steroid into the nerve. Pulsed radiofrequency can also be used to help with the pain and inflammation. I found this under this link: Hope this will be helpful to you!!!
Avatar n tn But I ask you, could forcing a lot our eyes in front of a screen for a long periode of time finish by injurying nerves and muscles in the front of my head? Or/and could my bad posture kind of jammed my neck and therefore alter my blood flow or something like that?
Avatar n tn After that you can do your daily activities and after 2 days you can do your Physical therapy as the pain and inflammation at the site of injection would have reduced to minimal level. Take care!
Avatar n tn I have read more that dQ may truly be a form of tendonitis, which would not respond to bracing, immobilization, Cortisone shots (only abates pain/inflammation for awhile) and certainly not surgery. There was also a video segment where one immerses the hand, wrist and upper arm in water as cold as you can stand it and then immersing into hot water, may help relieve inflammation, but still probably won't get at the core of the problem.
Avatar f tn Some of the other symptoms are chronic yeast infections, bladder inflammation that feels like an infection (often mistaken for interstital cystitis), bowel inflammation, eye inflammation, arthritis, fibromyalga, chronic fatique, and sometimes central nervous system involvement. It is important that people with this illness get treatment as soon as possible with immune suppressants by a Rhuemotologist. That is who you really need to see next.
Avatar n tn HELLO. Many of the symptoms listed are very familiar to me, and had I not ended up at an allergy specialist that recognized that my symptoms had very little to do with allergies, I would be totally, disfunctionally sick by now. Look up any information you can get on Myofascial Pain Disorder (MPD) because many of the people with TMJ, neck pain & stiffness, head pain at one side of head or eye, or ear, sinus congestion or post nasal drip, bad headaches, sensitivity to cold, etc.
Avatar n tn I dont know why we hurt, and it seems, neither does anyone else. I bought burn gel tonight, its has 2.5% lidocaine in it and it numbs the area of a burn, I may use it and see what happens, it was a suggestion to help the pain of vulvondia on a site, its OTC and I got it at Walmart for $5.
Avatar m tn If there is no infection the usual treatment is an anti-inflammatory (prednisone) and range of motion exercises. They are now also using a transdermal lidocaine patch, that is cut and placed on the back of the neck for up to twelve hours. The good news is this will probably resolve over time. Just in case it does not, you need to have your ducks in order. If you did this at the VA, you can't have a tort action of course. But document everything just the same.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar n tn i had a procedure done where they go through the mouth and check the stomach. doc said nothing bad just some inflammation. please give me some advice and maybe some ideas to mention to new gastro doc.
