I have had over 30years of back pain. Had fusion 20 years ago, lamonectomy, many different injections to try and ease pain, pain killers, recently had small nerves around spine killed off.
Cannot stand for more than 10minutes without pain becoming worse and worse, cannot sit long, pain medications not working.
Next step is to try peripheral nerve field stimulator.
Would love to hear if anyone has had any success with this.


  • I have been suffering for around 30 years with back issues myself. More so the last 7 years after having surgery. Are you refering to the nerve stimulater? Or what is the diference between the regular scs=nerve stimulater and the stimulater you mentioned? Sorry i just never heard it called as you called it if its the same.

    I had 2 trials of the scs. One was before i ever had surgery. 2nd was after surgery failed. Scs failed to help me both times. But some swear by it and get releif. There are many here on the forum who have it. By the way welcome if you are new here.

    If you look around there is a section where some talk about the scs=nerve stimulater that they have. Good luck. Hope it works for you. Keep us informed how it works out.
