Does anyone use those lidocaine patches, called lidoderm? They are made by Endo, and come in a big plastic package, and you can cut them to fit your shoulder, or hip, or knee, or whatever else is hurting at the time. I got this and it did absolutely nothing for my fibro pain. I had hip pain in both hips so bad the other day, that I tried the patches and it didn't do a thing. I am glad insurance paid for it, because I don't use them. (It's like a topical patch with lidocaine in it).
