Patient : My husband gets 20 lidocaine injections a day, 7 days a week for back, neck and shoulder pain from a rheumatologist. We had another rheumatologist tell us that his methods are uncomventional and that no one in his office would ever do this. Is this normal and could he have side effects or other medical problems due to these injections?
