Lidocaine Infusions…


Yesterday I received my appointment for Lidocaine Infusions. The dates set were almost right on track from what the Pain Management Doctor had told me only days before Christmas. He said he would fast track the procedure (and that was before my current condition) but as it was right on Christmas it would probably be mid to late February before it came up. My appointment is for the 6th, 7th and 8th March.

Strangely enough I haven’t really been able to source a lot of information on Lidocaine infusions for CRPS. It looks like it is a medication they use quite successfully for Migraines. Of course I headed straight for my trusty friends at my Australian forum – so much knowledge and support – more than doctors know (in my opinion) The Australian RSD Support Group The Australian Forum members seemed to have had Ketamine Infusions but don’t seem to be savvy on Lidocaine Infusions.

Don’t go to Doctor Google – Must not go to Doctor Google……argh!

Well I haven’t read anything bad and again I think the only opinions I could find were on people with migraines. My Pain Management Doctor felt that he would prefer to do Lidocaine Infusions over Ketamine as he didn’t see me as having too many opiods in my system. Well that was before my flare/new me that started strangely not too many hours after seeing him on the 21st December. Of course I will talk to them before the treatments starts to make sure he is still happy to use Lidocaine (or Ligonocaine) over Ketamine as I know take a lot more opiates than when I spoke to him last.

My outlook on my coming Infusions? Hopeful, mimicking signs of positivity, without being truly desperate for pain releif therefore hopefully not feeling completely disillusioned by failure. Complexed? I hope so 🙂
