My doctor couldn't think of any pill to prescribe me to take away a migraine when I had one... besides imitrex which had side effects worse than the migraine itself. So now he has prescribed lidocaine to put into my nose. They do make a nose spray for this purpose, from what I have read. But he prescribed lidocaine gel because that's the only kind my insurance would pay for. Does anyone have any idea how I'm supposed to get this gel up into my nose? It's literally just a tube of gel. The thought of trying to snort numbing gel is kind of horrifying.
