Hello. I am new to this site and am wondering if anyone else has had similar side effects?
To give a little bit of background, I have L4-S1 fused. I have had all of the hardware in my spine removed and have had the SCS for just over one year.
A couple of months after having the SCS implanted I started to have difficulty regulating my body temperature. When it first happened this only occurred once every two weeks. Now it is almost daily. I become absolutely freezing, I start to shake, my joints starts to hurt and it physically hurts to move around.
My Neurosurgeon says she has never heard of anyone with a SCS experiencing this but I am not so sure. If there is any way the SCS is causing my issues I want it removed immediately.
Thank you for your feedback in advance!
