Has anyone had temperature changes after SCS implant?

I have had my SCS in 4 months now and I can't stand it when the AC is higher then 66 anywhere above 70 and I'm sweating ... Has anyone experienced this?

Of course my PM said no it can't be from a SCS....


  • My first thought, is there any medication/s that you were on prior to getting your implant that you are no longer taking? Or did you start any new medication recently? Anything is possible, however it would seem highly unlikely you have issues with temperature unless you possibly have a low grade fever from an infection brought on my the implant.

    Let us know what you eventually find out.

  • The only temp change for me that I have noticed it my hand that is affected by my nerve damage is warm now after almost 4 yrs of bn cold. As far as temp change like u mentioned I would talk to ur doc about it and see if it is a side effect of meds on or use to be on.
  • I would see if your body is adapting or rejecting the device in the body. Remember anything that doesn't belong our body will naturally try to fight it off. I agree that it may be an infection or medication you are on. The chances of it being your SCS now, 4 weeks later i would think is uncommon. You would have more likely experience this within the first two weeks. When did you have your staples removed? Did you just finish your anti-biotic or stilling taking them?
