    Has anyone tried the lidoderm patches??They are patches that have lidocaine on them.You can put them on a sore muscle area and the medication absorbs into the skin and muscle.I have tried them and they are working well for me.Could be an idea for someone to try. Lana56

    I TRIED THESE PATCHES, BUT THEY HAVE NOT WORKED FOR ME. MY RHEUMY WAS SURPRISED! I AM GLAD THAT YOU ARE FINDING RELIEF, THOUGH!

    Yes, and I absolutely love them. As far as I am concerned - they are one of the most overlooked help for Fibro that I know of. I am not even sure that a lot of doctors know about them or they would prescribe them more often. My Neuro prescribed them for me prior to the Holiday Season last year and I don't think I could have gotten through without them. You do need a prescription for them.
