Hello, I have had several lidocaine infusions and after the last one they put me on a med called Mexelitine which I have had great luck with. It made the infusions last longer and my RSD in arm is much better, in fact if I miss a dose my body seems to let me know! I have also heard of lidocaine patches and used them as recently my RSD spread into my right leg due to another accident. When trying to drive it would aggravate the RSD and I was completely unable to use the leg at all. With the patch on my thigh I could cope with the drive as I have a son with a kidney transplant which then gave him cancer so I HAVE to drive. We are currently trying to decide what to do for further treatment and actually meet next week but had to have and emergency block yesterday to be able to walk! I don't know if I would agree to a lidocaine pump as a morphine pump is one thing we have thrown back and forth. I hate pills but they make me feel as if I have some control whereas with a pump you have much less control. I have a friend that has one, I will ask her how she likes hers!

Good Luck!!! Hope for pain freee days for everyone!! Lisa
