I am new here, so hello to all of you struggling with chronic pain and trying to find solutions. I feel some days, I am in the ARGO movie where they discuss there are no good options. They go with the best bad option they can use. Severe chronic pain seems to pick whatever the best bad option is available to you that day.
Anyway, has anyone received a horrible shock from their SCS? I had two minor shocks and one HUGE shock that made me feel I was being electrocuted. If my husband had not been standing right next to me, I would have fallen over and hit the hard floor. This happened about nine months ago. I cannot get Medtronic to look at the matter. They state they do not give medical advice.
As an aside, I am a critical care registered nurse. I have a long history in my career of working with medical equipment, and I have to say, this painful event has left me frightened to use my very expensive, and now useless medical device.
Medtronic does not seem to care. I am stuck with the device and they have the money from the insurance company. Any advice from SCS patients who have had this experience and received an answer would be appreciated.
