Hi everyone. I have just been looking back on some earlier posting's and found one from Honey2 back in 2003 who was going to have lignocaine infusions. Well my Rheumy had referred me on for these to another hospital in the UK as we have exhausted all pain meds and treatment's over the year's. I have been told you are hooked up to a drip for 6 day's and also a heart monitor which sound's a bit scarey!!!!!!!!!. He told me all my nerve ending's are in a major flare and have to do something to calm them down and this could help. Thing is is sound's rather drastic and was wondering if anyone else has had these infusion's and they helped? He also mentioned the use of magnetic therapy on all the 18 tender point's too. I shall be looking in to that. Hope you are all keeping relatively well and have a good weekend. Take care. Julie jo.
