HI, I am a Newbie to this Forum.

I have had Chronic Lower back/leg pain since 2009. 3 months ago I had a neurostimulator put in my spine (paddle put in at T7,T8) and it had been helping with my chronic pain, but now with the weather changes - well the pain has returned just as before.

I have an appt. with my rep. to have my stimulator readjusted to see if that will help - just wondering how do you cope with pain and the weather changes.

I had L5/S1 surgery in 2010 and it help for about 6 weeks then the pain came back, went through PT, had numerous shots in my back with no luck and found the stimulator was my best bet for my pain.
