Axium DRG Stimulator Stopped Relieving Pain

I'm new to this forum. I'm having a heck of a time finding any information or person with a similar situation or experience like mine and I'm at my wits end. I have had chronic, thoracic (below right side rib cage) nerve pain for about 10 years. I had the Axium DRG stim implanted in Oct 2013. For 3 or so months ALL my pain was covered and I rarely needed any meds. Then the pain started coming back gradually. They can find no reason for the change and low impedance in the leads but my stim is only covering about 15-20% of my pain and in back up to max in pain meds. 

Trialing a Nevro stim right now and not having much luck. 

Has anyone else had a similar experience with the DRG stim working temporarily?
