I was prescribed Lidocane/Gabapentin topical gel which has been a lifesaver, for those of you who might behaving problems with dialators, this gel is a numbing agent, (lidocane) with a nerve ending calming agent (gabapentin). I used this get before an internal exam by my PT and felt no pain at all. (shoc I will be getting the dialators soon and plan to combine the gel to help with the process. The purpose of the gel is to eventually calm the nerves inside that only seem to register pain. It has been helping. Has anyone else used this type of gel before for treatment?
