According to my surgeon, my DJD is not active in my back but I still have severe back pain. I take Indomethacin 25mg 3 times a day but wear the patch at night for spine pain where I had the surgery. (Titanium metal replaced the decayed bones). I also take pain medication but have weened myself of only as needed.
Hmmm... haven't heard of this one, but it would kind of make sense. Lidocaine is usually injected (like at the dentist)or along with steriods for imflamation. I will have to ask my pain doc about it. Of-couse they would have to have a patch 5 foot tall & about 34 inches around for me hehe. Good luck, & hope it helps. I've had 2 failed back surgeries & now no one will touch me because all I have left is scar tissue in my lower spine. Bummer!
