I have a portable TENS unit I use for my back since I have
DDD, Spinal Stenosis, arthritis, lumbar facet arthropathy, etc.
I also have neck pain for a few years. I used my portable TENS on my neck once for the first time 7 weeks ago. That was a huge mistake since I suffer more than ever with constant neck pain. I thought I was using the unit correctly. I have such sensitivity that I can't touch my neck without suffering. The weird sensation also affects my head when I touch my neck. I can't wear a scarf around my neck, can't wear a hat, can't massage my neck, can't use my recliner, etc. since I have horrible sensations in my neck that go to my head.
I saw several doctors who prescribed meds which don't help at all. My doctors don't
seem to know enough about the TENS & its side effects. I saw a neck & spine specialist, pain management doctor, neurologist, etc.
I just had a MRI & X Ray of my cervical spine. I never knew I have "Ankylosis of a few facets". So now I am seeing also Rheumatologist. However the weird suffering I have started after using the TENS weeks ago.
Can anyone tell me what happened with my using the TENS unit?
This is so upsetting since I suffer with so much pain all the
time. I can't find anything on the internet about what I am going through. Please help! Thanks
