Hi to all,
I suffer from various chronic pain between fibro ,rheumatoid and other ailments. I started lido infusions a few years ago. I had been suffering for several years and still its a battle. Before lidocaine i was on so many meds , Like you i felt like a walking pharmacy taking upwards to 8 to 12 meds a of different pills and pain killers a day. I felt more tired and sick from all the meds. A few treatments of the lido and i felt so free, i slowly weaned off the meds and am now down to 3 at night. But unfortunately i am more a severe case and cant never go with out. I know what you mean by " The end of your ropes" Chronic pain of all types severe or not is frustrating and hard to live with. Lido infusions helped me get back to a somewhat normal life and all it took was an afternoon with an IV every couple weeks. Everybody reacts different but it works temporarily for me. There are lots of websites with info on infusons. I hope this helps somewhat and you find comfort and something that works for you. Blessings
