Does anyone use lidocaine patches? I have been for about 3 years now and I put them on my shoulders and back of neck, where my pain is the most intense. They work for me to numb the area. I love them!!
SherriLyn, like Shammagren said, I didn't find they got deep enough to the source of the pain. Even when wearing them for several hours, it didn't penetrate deep enough. I will use them when my skin is actually hurting. That helps. Sometimes I use a strip across the back of my neck because I've had so many surgeries there that it helps the area where all the scar tissue is not to be so sore.
