Intravenous lidocaine infusions for Small Fiber Neuropathy

Met with my Neurologist today and we both agreed to up the lidocaine doseage. Apparently it coincides with your weight. My max dose would be 1000 mg so we are taking it from my initial 4 week dose of 600 mg to 750 mg. Its important to not have side effects and tolerate each dose. During the infusion you are hooked up to heart monitors and nurses check your vitals every 30 minutes. Here's hoping for better relief!

Hi rwinney, did the higher dosages provide relief?
