injection site pain

Kaia-angel - July 30

has anyone had a bad reaction to the lidocaine injections? i went to my 1st pain management appointment yesterday after giving up on my rheumatologist. i got injections in my muscles of my neck and back around my shoulder blades. the numbness worked only partially but today after waking up the injection sites are killing me! i totally regret having them done. it only offered slight relief yesterday but today it feels worse than ever! has anyone had this problem? if so, what helped?

Oh my gosh! I've been wanting to get these injections as soon as I get insurance again. It's not helping you at all? I was really hoping these shots would give me some relief from the constant horrible headaches I have, but maybe I should re-think this now!

What exactly are the pros and cons? At least in your experience? I appreciate any advice you've got!

Thanks, Stacey :o)

The pain should prolly reside in a few days. Nerve blocks usually give 2-3 weeks of relief.

Been there, done that and it was totally worth it. I used an ice pack on the way home after the injections. Then I used Myoflex which is a rub for muscle pain. The injection sites were extremely painful for about a week. But, if I had to do it again, I would. The end result was excellent.

I've even had bad reactions after flu shots, bloodwork and other injections. I find that if I plan ahead (ice packs afterwards) etc it helps. Fibromyalgia amplifies even the most simple procedures times ten. Now I use Myoflex prior to injections as well.

You should feel some relief soon. Hang in there. Take care.
