In Reply to: Attn: Margi-Dr. wants to inject... posted by Kitty on January 24, 2002 at 21:46:05:

Lidocaine is INSTILLED (NOT INJECTED) (thru the nose) in the sphenopalatine ganglium.

This is a poor result thing but, on the other hand, is NOT painful, just annoying. You can try it, 15% of good results, but you have to do 3 or 4 times.

The other way is to inject GLICERINE!!! and not Lidocaine!!! idirectly in the trigeminal nerve, passing thru the jaws, near the ear. But this is a 'cure' used generally for trigeminal neuralgia.
And is terribly painful, believe me!

But to INJECT LIDOCAINE NEAR THE EYE !!!!!!! NOOOOO I would not try this, in any case!

It sounds like snakeoil vendors: he (the idiot that said you this) thought: Lidocaine is an anaestethic, the pain is in the eye..... GO FOR IT! Is like if you have sciatica, and he INJECTs Lidocaine in your LEG (not in the spinal cord! at least, this could have more sense, despite the weirdness of all this!)

Good luck, but not with injections!!!
