    Just want to let everyone know about the lidoderm patches.Yes you need a prescription for the patches.They have lidocaine in them.You can put them on any spot that is painful.The lidocaine absorbs into the skin and muscles.You can cut them also.A patch should ONLY stay on for twelve hours and never put more than three on the body at the same time.Some people will get some pain relief.I myself find them helpful.If you have never tried them,consider it and talk to your doctor.
