This is new to me.
I have a friend who recently had 2 (yes 2!) SCS's at the same time (cervical and lumbar).
At her recent appt, her Dr said her spinal pressure reading was elevated, which was causing headaches and pain....
So, they wanted to see if the SCS was causing this. They did a pressure reading with her units turned ON and the reading was elevated......when they did a reading with her units OFF, the spinal pressure went DOWN.
I have never heard of such a thing.
When I turn my lumbar SCS on, I can feel a 'pressure/tightening' sensation in my lower back and am wondering if perhaps this is related to the back pain issues I am experiencing. :?
Any thoughts on this?
