Nerve block location
I implanted an NTAG (Video Link) a couple weeks back. My next item will be an M31 implant in my ring finger. I've been experimenting with lidocaine injections to determine the best locations and amounts for an effective pain block.
I tried the tendon sheath site which was relatively effective. But ended up with tenosynovitis for a week after that. Webbing works alright, but takes more than 2ml on each side for an effective block.
I found another effective area, but haven't found any info related to it. Basically 0.5 - 1ml of lidocaine on each side of the median of the finger seems to be effective for about 15 minutes of complete blocking of the fingertip.
Anyone know of any downsides to this location?
