Arm Pain

edited 06/11/2012 - 8:27 AM in Chronic Pain
Hi, I crushed my arm in a machine at work a little over 2 years ago. Since February of '07 pain management doctors have been recommending a spinal cord stimulator to relieve the chronic pain that all the pain meds couldnt control. Worker's compensation has spent the last 2 years giving me the run around - constantly changing doctors and using the same treatments over and over. I have had a total of 10 ganglion nerve blocks in my neck, I have been to occupational therapy 4 times, 2 surgeries, and so many drugs and pain pathches that I think they have fried my brain - lol. I am to see a surgeon this week regarding a trial spinal cord stimulator in my neck to control the nerve pain from my arm. Has anyone out there had this done to them?


  • I'm so sorry about your horrific accident. It must have been traumatic!

    Try posting in the Pain Management forum. There is a lot of information there about the spinal cord stimulators. While our experiences with pain come from a different source you may get some of the answers you seek there.

    Good luck to you,
