Lidocaine Injections are administered on site at one of our clinics by Innovative Wellness Solutions. Pain is subjective, however the vast majority of patients who have received injections have noted the experience is relatively painless. The injection will be placed directly into the troublesome area. Immediately upon receiving Lidocaine, the affected area will feel numb.
Common side effects of lidocaine injections could include dizziness, mild bruising, nausea, redness, swelling and itching.
Rare, but more severe side effects could include anxiety, depression, an increase in heart rate, blurred vision, shallow breathing as well as a feeling faint.
If you experience any of these symptoms after receiving lidocaine, it is imperative that you notify your physician immediately.
