Yes, my doctor just prescribed them today. I have pain on top of the foot fm big & 2nd toe to ankle (just the foot, not into ankle)- sudden electric shock raw nerve pain w/ movement- no bone issues. Not sure of exact cause, but I do have RA & that does nasty things all over the body, altho it's usually both sides & not just one. Doc said will prob have to have surgery, but we are trying the patches & orthotics 1st to see if it helps.

As to if the Lidoderm patches help, I can't answer that one yet. They were $273 a box- something to think abt depending on your insurance situation & what is causing your pain. At least discuss it w/ your doc.
