It certainly does happen! Myself and 2 of my immediate family members have somewhat of a resistance to Lidocane (particularly during clinical procedures) and we usually have to be given 2x-3x the 'average' amount. In my case, this seems to be a genetic issue. Perhaps you could ask your family if they know of this running in the family?
Sometimes when you're dealing with a local operation that's infected or extremely painful to begin with, the lidocaine doesn't take like it should.
What form of lidocaine did you use, and for what reason?
