"C", Bionic Woman and the rest of you who have had your
stimulators for a while---I know that this isn't a
"cure" and I expected to have some pain but these past
few days I've had horrible ongoing pain with my stimulator
turned up full-blast. In the month or so that I've had it
I've had a few bad days but nothing like this. I intend to
call the St Jude reps and have them turn up the juice. I find that the more accustomed I become to this thing, the more tolerant I become to the stimulation. Also, I prefer, the slower pulsating, massaging type sensation. I'm just a little freaked out by how much I'm hurting and how little the stimulator is helping. I called my PCP (today is SAT) to get a prescription for Lyrica) which knocks me out and I can just sleep through the pain. I'm crying again and would just like some reassurance that once I get my stim readjusted, everything will be okay. I thought I had found the Holy Grail. All comments would be apprecialed. Susan.
