I had a St. Jude's SCS implanted over a year ago. Recently upgraded to burst, with a new Prodigy controller (rechargeable battery). I always turned the SCS off when going to bed. With the burst mode, I have left it turned on. I take Ambien 5mg and Trazodone 150mg. Never a problem falling asleep with the CSC turned off. About a month or so ago, I started having trouble going to sleep, and back to sleep after putting the dogs out, between 0400hr to 0500hr. Last night, while trying to go back to sleep, I wondered if it was the SCS causing the problem. Turned it off, and was soon asleep. I'll try that again tonight, and see what happens.
Has anyone else had this problem? I have also noticed that the burst mode does effect my mood, negative attitude, and so on. After a few days, that effect goes away.
