I Have had a medtronic spinal cord stimulator for about 3 months now. Every time it gets turned on i get severe headaches and then turn it off. If i dont turn it on i dont get a headache. A medtronic doctor said to leave it off for a month and then we turned it on very very low so i cant even feel it. every week it is getting turned up 1 level. Still taking a high dose of oxycoten which hasnt changed at all. I would much rather deal with pain then headaches. before the scs i had a 2 level fusion in my lumbar. 30 days after the first surgery i was back in surgery again where the top pedical screw was on the right side the bone broke so it had to get repaired. About 3/4 of my right leg has no feeling.
I was wondering if anyone has had this problem with the headaches and what was done with it.
