I was just wondering if anyone had any success with IV Lidocaine therapy? This has just been planned for me at B & W Hospital in Boston, Chestnut Hill Pain Center. I have chronic pain on basically the whole right side of my body from both a long term neck issue and a spinal tumor removed last August. If you would be willing to share your experience, I would really appreciate it. P.S. I miss all my spiney friends from chat- it has been a while....
