Hi, I was seen by my dermatologist yesterday because my under arm pain came back and he gave me prescription called lidocaine 5% for numbing the area. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night feeling very hot, my heart started pounding fast, I couldn't see anything and kept breathing fast. I was scared of all this feeling and I called my doctor this morning about it and just told me to take it easy.
I called the pharmacy and the woman told me that lidocaine can have allergic reactions and can cause rapid heartbeat, fever, breathing problem. I was told to stop using it.
Right now I have a numbing sensation in my left wrist and I feel very weird in my stomach. I want to know are their any remedies of any kind to stop this numbing feeling? Can such thing become permanent? Please let me know.
