Has anyone ever herniated disc while having a SCS? I am suddenly having major sciatica in my left leg. My l5-s1 is really bulged. The surgeon told me it could go any day now. I turned the current up on the SCS to help cover the pain but its not helping. I will have to have a myelogram to check for a compressed nerve, which I am not looking forward to. I hear they are really painful. Thanks for any input.
