Thank you for sharing this Mads. I haven’t has injections but have started lidocaine infusions with relief for the first time. I just had my second one a few days ago. I have found significant relief from burning but if I push it I still get the cramping and stabbing. Last time it only lasted a short while. I am hoping with the combination of the infusion and mexilitin my my relief will last longer this time.
Take care,
