WHERE ARE LIDNOCAINE INTRAVENOUS INFUSION’S AVAILABLE FOR PAIN? …

As I am sure you will have seen from some of my previous posts, ‘Lidnocain Intravenous Infusion’ for chronic pain seems to be available in some NHS Hospitals but not from all of them.

Recently the BBC revealed that a 66 year old gentleman had his infusions stopped as the Hospital was concerned with meeting targets set for accident and emergency (A&E) departments.

This particular gentleman had been receiving the treatment for 20 years to help him with the pain of Fibromyalgia and other health problems. He is now finding it difficult to cope with the change in his treatment.

I keep hearing about how amazing this treatment can be for chronic pain and have asked around to see if it is available in our area but it has never been offered to me. Now I think I can see ‘why’ it has not been offered to me.

  1. Nice to see you again, Bar :wave: I was only thinking the other day I hadn’t seen you around recently! Hope you’re OK … yes, I do hope you get access to this painkiller. It should surely be automatically offered to somebody like you :yes:
