Hello, I am new to this Forum. I got my permanent Nevro SCS implanted on February 7th. I have noticed that when I lay down on my back, the tissue around the IPG seems to twitch. It feels like I am getting electricity running through the area. I mentioned it to my rep during my first post-op appointment. She said I should not feel anything there because the power is going to the paddles. Last night, while lying down, I was feeling the twitching, so to test the source, I turned off the Nevro SCS. The twitching stopped immediately. When I powered it back on, the unit went to P1 level 2 and I felt a little twitching. As I cycled through the levels to get back to P1 level 6, the twitching got progressively worse. Has anyone else experienced this? I am trying to figure out this is normal or if there is something wrong with the IPG or wiring.
