  • Perceived effectiveness for anesthesia: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: I was given lidocaine as a Bier block during hand surgery. Post-operatively, I had no fibromyalgia pain for 3-4 days. The effect was immediate. My pain specialist has since prescribed mexiletine. I've only been on it for a couple of weeks, but it has reduced pain by about 30%.
