Hi out there my name is Jim I have suffered for thirty five years with chronic back pain after 2 surgeries. As the pain became worse with age and degeneration I finally opted for spinal stimulation surgery and had the procedure done in October of 2014. The surgeon did a great job and it gave me relief . However since my teenhood I have had restless leg and arm syndrome and 2 weeks after the surgery I went back to hospital as my restless leg syndrome had become much worse and I was just short of convulsion levels. They put me on parkinson's meds hopping would help but did not. I shut the stimulator off and my restless leg syndrome returned to normal where it was before surgery. My surgeon is scratching his head has never heard of this before. My question has anyone herd of this before and if so could you shed some light on this problem? I sure would like to turn stimulator back on and get off the pain meds. Thank You
