I haven't been on the website in quite a while. Life just got in the way and I really wasn't getting anywhere with my pain battle, so I took a break. Now I am at a point where I could use some input from all of you.
My pain management professionals are now talking about the possibility of me trying an SCS for my neck pain. After 6 or 7 years on all of these medications, no success with other procedures, there is a concern about the effect these meds may be having or will have on the rest of my body. My pain is FINALLY managed with these drugs so I can function better, but it seems as though an underlying nausea is now entering the picture. I do undergo lab tests to monitor these meds and their effect on kidneys and liver. I would love to at least lower the number or dosages I am taking.
Has anyone ever gone the SCS route specifically to target neck pain? I would REALLY appreciate any knowledge and/or input from anyone whom has experienced this, or knows of someone having gone through it. Thank-you for listening and I hope to hear from you.
