I know I can not be the only one going through this.
During my trial it was March and I had a heavy flannel shirt on all the time. I'm always cold, I need above 76 degrees most of the time to feel warm. lucky me.
The sensation from the SCS is driving me NUTS. I feel like I am freezing to death! I am sitting in my offics at work and it is raining out. I have the usual pain, the SCS on, the tunnel for my wires really hurts from leaning on it the last three days back at work. I just can't help but wonder when all this will end.
I am not sleeping well or hardly at all. Really questioning my sanity. I toss and turn all night. I can't run the SCS in bed because the sensation varies so much it wakes me up or does not cover the pain. Geez, what a crybaby... :''(
Yes, I have my PCP pondering any possible options. I have tried benadryl, Ambien, Lunesta for sleep. This all seems so surreal. how do I get off this ride?
gee, I hesitate to post this as I don't want to scare anyone about the SCS. I sure could use some help if anyone else has been dealing with the COLD and sleepless nights.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
indeed, they are...
