Lidocaine block

Common Questions and Answers about Lidocaine block


Avatar f tn I couldn't sleep two nights running. Anyway, PM NP thinks I should try a lidocaine infusion this time instead of a stellate ganglion block thinking I'll get more benefit and it will help with all the pain. Just wondering if anyone has tried it.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. I get very helpful nerve block injections every 4 weeks for otherwise severe 24/7 migraine pain. The stuff that is used in mine is nothing like yours which didn't even sound like a "nerve block". My neurologist uses bupivacaine which is a local anaesthetic. It is injected into the body where it will either totally stop pain or will cause partial loss of feeling (numbness). It will not put you to sleep.
Avatar f tn I am scheduled for a thoracic facet block for next Friday. Are steriods used for this procedure? And if they are, can they substitute the steriod with a non- steriod medication? I had an epidural Sept. 2007 and I gained weight and It didn't work, I am not even sure I will go through with procedure now.
Avatar f tn I can't deal with the thought of being sedated and a needle stuck in my neck. All over the place question is Has anyone had a nerve root block? Was it helpful, how long did it last etc.
Avatar f tn In a few weeks I will be having a spinal block. Will I be pain free after this procedure, what can I expect about pain and will I be up and moving more?
Avatar m tn Hi, six months after my left-side thoracotomy I was yesterday told by my surgeon (USA) that I need to get Lidocaine intercostal nerve-block injections for a persistent pain issue I'm having. Here in my country, Cyprus, though, it's impossible to find someone who has experience in injecting Lidocaine on the thorax. So, my second option is UK, but still I would need to find someone specialized on this type of nerve-block. Any recommendations?

If effective, it would eliminate the need to take anti-depressants, anti-convulsants, and other drugs like alpha blockers that have a tendency to make people drowsy.
Avatar m tn Due to undiagnosed right upper quadrant pain I have had two right celiac plexus nerve block injection. after the first injection i was pain free but it only lasted for a week and a have. A couple of days ago I had a second injection, and same as the first one the pain was completly gone after the injection, but now I'm experiencing left upper quadrant pain. Does anyone knows if this could be cause by the injection or if it could be unrelated to the nerve block injection? thanks.
Avatar n tn I think my neurosurgeon is going to suggest an epi to block my nerve. I am the biggest baby in the world and am so frightened to have this done. Has anyone had this done for their back? If so, can you tell me a little bit about it. Will I need pain killers after. I want to get off of these and I am afraid if I have surgery I will be taking them for a long time. Can they put you to sleep or give you medication when they do this? Did it help the pain in your back?
Avatar n tn Well yesterday I had my second lumbar nerve block. I told the radiologist that the first one gave me real relief on days five and six following the procedure and now I feel worse than ever. He told me the same thing my neursurgeon said..that was normal and number two should give relief for two to three weeks (starting on day five). if it does, we go on to nerve block number three next month, if it doesn't we look at surgery for pinal stability as an option.

Avatar f tn My husband is having a lidocaine trigeminal nerve block. Of all the info I find on this, there is little to no information regarding possible risks. Any information anyone may have regarding risks for this treatment would be very helpful. Thanks!
Avatar m tn I think that a nerve block by a skilled practitioner is worth a try. Occipital nerve block is a procedure where anesthetic agents like lidocaine and bupivacaine are injected near the occipital nerve on the back of the head near the base of the skull. The injection is done on the side of the migraine headache. The information I have states that within five minutes after the nerve block, 60% of patients had mild or no headache and 75% of patients had mild or no light sensitivity.
1334432 tn?1275539615 I had carpal tunnel and tendonitis surgery a year ago in May I had a nerve block done in my neck instead of general anesthesia. From the time the nerve block wore off I started having SEVERE pain my in neck and now it is starting to radiate down my back. I have had a steriod injection done, a nerve sublation, trigger point injections, and injections with sucrose and lidocaine. I have been on muscle relaxers and every pain pill from percocet to methadone and nothing has helped the pain.
Avatar n tn Anticonvulsants can cause low white cell counts, dizziness and lidocaine and mexiletene cause nervousness and double vision. Nerve block with lidocaine into the area surrounding the nerve can cause temporary relief of symptoms by blocking the impulses to nervous system. I hope this helps. Please feel free to post a query again.

Avatar f tn Hi georgete and welcome to the Spinal Cord C/D forum. I wish I had an answer for you ,but I have not had that procedure and have no idea if it will be painful or anesthesia means you will not be put out...but you may still be given some sort of pain block for it. Good luck and let us know how it goes for you.

Avatar n tn Hello Dear, Lidocaine blocks conduction of nerve impulses by decreasing neuronal membrane's permeability of sodium ions, which results in inhibition of depolarization and blockade of conduction. Intranasal administration of lidocaine drops requires specific and, for many patients, difficult technique. The dose is 4%solution intranasally.
Avatar f tn I have seen 13 doctors for extreme vulvodynia (specifically clitoridynia) which is getting worse by the day and have had no relief from every medication imaginable (Elavil, Neurontin,Lyrica, opiods, compounded meds, lidocaine). I need a non-medication approach like nerve block, but every neurologist I've contacted does not treat this disorder. HELP!!
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, i was diagnosed with Shenopalatine Neuralgia today and have been in pain for 10 years following a Zoster infection. Doctor scheduled me for a block intral nasal application of Lidocaine, does anyone tried that? does it work?
14051 tn?1238255332 Why did the steroid injection with Lidocaine, that I had today, give me the same relief as the 2 injections of Lidocaine in the middle of my back? The doctor and I are baffled. If anyone has any thoughts, throw them my way as I am grasping at straws and a sympathectomy is looking pretty darn good to me right now!
3112530 tn?1434035633 Stretching and strengthening exercises are the mainstay of treatment and need to be performed several times in a day. Other than this anesthetics such as lidocaine, BOTOX and steroids can be injected into the muscle. However, use of lidocaine and botox has its own side effects. A mix- and match of these treatment options have to be tried. Failure to achieve pain relief can be due to obturator internus muscle injury. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn This could mean losing weight and loose clothing etc. for severe pain, focal nerve block with corticosteroids and lidocaine under untrasound guidance. You could be prescribed neurogenic pain medications like carbamazepine, gabapentin and lastly surgical decompression. I would advise you to consult your neurologist and take nerve block or the medications before your vacation since the sports that you have planned could most likely trigger an episode of pain. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn You will be having regional anesthesia at your hand below the wrist so that the finger surgery can be performed without pain. A digital block is administered sometimes before attempting to reduce a fracture. A Combination of lidocaine and bupivacaine is used whenever possible to help with post procedure pain control. You will be put for simple tests like: bleeding time, clotting time, blood hemoglobin, fasting blood sugar and also all your vitals (blood pressure, pulse etc) will be checked.
Avatar n tn My husband had nerve damage in his stomach area due to surgery. A nerve block has been recommended. I cannot find what type of medication is used, or if it comes with side affects. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn An older treatment for migraine headaches involves placing a Qtip that has been dipped in lidocaine (an anesthetic) into your nose to theoretically block the pain receptors on the side of the headache. Although I have never personally used this or seen this done, my former mentors report some success with this treatment. Good luck.
Avatar f tn The best agent to put into the bladder is intravesical lidocaine instillations. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that helps block flare ups. Patients with the bladder ulcers often respond to cauterization of the ulcers with either an electric cautery or a low power laser. Your Urologist should have all these options available for you. Good Luck.
