I had my trial #LidocaineInfusion at my local hospital on Thursday 11 August 2016. I didn't know what to expect at the time as there was very little information online about people who had had one and the information that was there were of people who had had negative experiences. About 3 weeks after I had the infusion the nurse called to check how things were going. I explained that my base pain level had halved from 8/10 to 4/10 and as a bonus I no longer had tachycardia while I was lying down. She and I were both more than pleased with the results. She then told me to wait until my pain levels were back to my pre-infusion levels then call them back again. I decided not to wait too long as I didn't know how long it would take to go from phoning up to knowing whether I'd be allowed another one and then actually getting the infusion and didn't want to suffer any longer than I had to. So I decided to call once I noticed a combination of an increase in my pain levels and an increase in my heart rate. Fast forward 11 months from my infusion date. I called the pain team again on Monday 10 July and the person who I spoke to told me they'd let them know that I'd called at the team meeting on Wednesday. I also mentioned my concerns about being asked by neurology to stop my Tramadol to see if it's the cause of my more severe headaches as I'd experienced Akathisia when I've attempted to reduce the Tramadol in the past while I was on the phone and they said that they'd mention that too. On Wednesday I got a call from the nurse who gave me the infusion back in August saying that I was indeed allowed another infusion as I'd lasted about a year and that I may be able to go in for it as early as next Thursday (20 July) but the doctor in charge is off work until Monday 17 July so wouldn't be able to confirm it or organise another date for my infusion until then. Yesterday was Monday 17 July & the nurse from the pain team called me back and confirmed that it had indeed been organised for me to go in for another Lidocaine Infusion on Thursday 20 July @ 9:30am. I'm more hopeful going into it for a second time knowing that it does help just hope it works as well this time around.
