Journal: Three days after IV Lidocaine

Well, if I received some benefit on Monday, it's over now. Is it possible that it hurts worse now than it did before the Lidocaine? It's pretty discouraging. And I won't be back at the pain clinic for another week, and what can they even offer me? Before the Lidocaine, the pain clinic neuro told me that the remaining treatment options came with significant downsides in terms of side effects. This has been the kind of day when I shuffle through the literature on my employer's disability benefits, thinking in a slightly less abstract fashion about how much longer I can put up with the discomfort.
