1st Lidocaine Infusion / suggestions please
This coming Friday, finally, for the first time I am getting a Lidocaine infusion. Any suggestions for before and after the infusion?? Is remission possible? I hope I do not get nausea.
Some background follows: I was very healthy until injuries that brought on crps occurred ... Feb 27, 2012 (venipuncture, left arm) and Apr 3, 2012 (electrical injury, left arm). Multiple well known pain doctors have now diagnosed crps/rsd in left arm, left leg, & left facial. I also have crps symptoms in right arm, right leg, right facial, & trunk. Other than several meds, supplements, PT, Pain psychology, OT, ... this infusion will be my first procedure for crps. Some doctors were willing to do blocks, however, some doctors did not want to do blocks since my symptoms are systemic. My main symptoms/signs are systemic nerve pain, blood circulation issues, hand color changes, edema left foot, body jerking at rest state, & shiny feet. I always welcome hearing from another venipuncture or electrical injury crps patient too. Thank you! SS
