Post op pain from spinal cord stimulator

Hi, I'm new to the forum. It's late but I'm having some weird pains after my surgery. I had spinal stimulator surgery 3wks ago due to CRPS. I'm still having incision pain at the pocket site but today I had a pain I'm unsure of. I went to sit up with the program set lower due to the fact that I still get shocked when I move to fast since we haven't turned on the "learning battery" yet. As I started to sit up I got this strange feeling near the lead incision as if something was bubbling up through my skin. It was very painful and I had to quickly turn the unit down! Has anyone had this feeling? I have my first appt. with my pain management Dr. And the Medtronic educator this Friday. I'm just nervous the leads are off or something's wrong. After all my surgeries I've had enough.
