Success for MS Hug pain

Post by HappyPoet » Thu Mar 08, 2012 8:48 am

"Lidoderm lidocaine 5% patches" greatly helped my rib cage MS Hug pain. If not for these patches, I would have jumped.

Up to three patches can be worn at one time, 12 hours on, 12 hours off. The lidocaine works by DIRECTLY COATING the nerves under and near the patches. The lidocaine does not travel through the circulatory system so does not negatively affect the brain nor liver. There are no contraindications with other meds. No adverse side effects. No addiction issues. No worries.

Also, since lidocaine is NOT a narcotic, doctors will easily prescribe the Lidoderm patches; scripts can be written for 12 refills which is a year's supply @ 90 patches/month (3 patches/day for 30 days).

The patches are STRONG. The patches WORK FASSSST. The patches are LARGE! Three patches covers the areas of my worst rib cage MS Hug pain: The elephant stops crushing my chest, the knife stops stabbing me under my rib cage, the sharks stop biting my side, and the boa constrictor stops squeezing my rib cage.

Give your doc's office a call to ask if they will call in a script to your pharmacy--an appointment might not be necessary.

Best wishes.

Thanks much, Doug. :)

Forgot to say the patches can be cut to any size/shape needed.

HappyPoet,
Thank you for posting this. I've asked my doctor to submit a prescription so I can have these on hand in case of another attack. Truly frightening.

My pharmacy is awaiting approval from my medical insurance co. before they will fill it. I'm considering paying out-of-pocket if the delay continues.

Did you have any problem getting your medical insurance to cover these?

Thanks!

Hi,

Glad you have found some relief.

Have you ever had shingles?

Regards,
