I saw my Pain Doctor today & he gave me 4 Lidociane injections in my back. He said it would numb my muscles & get rid of my pain immediately & could last anywhere from 14 hours to 3 weeks. I asked him if they had any side effects & he said I might have palpitations but that was it. I’m not having palpitations but my pain is worse! I have shooting pain down my arms & legs and stabbing pain in my back. Also, when I touch my arms and legs the feeling can be compared to when you have a bruise and you touch it, it’s the same feeling. My muscles also feel tighter. I’ve heard good things about these injections & I don’t know if I should call my doctor & tell him that I’m in more pain than before I walked into his office. Has anyone felt worse after Lidocaine injections? Thank you!!!
