Re: Spinal Cord Stimulator for RSD

Well, I told you my story, and you can do a search for when I was asking questions about it. I did learn that you don't have to have it turned up really high to still have it work. It worked best at a low level. I had a lot of positional changes, esp with the trial. The permanent one (I had the paddle leads) worked where the positional changes weren't that bad. I did turn it off at night, or really, really low, because when you lie on your back the stimulation will increase dramatically.

The trial was not nearly as great as the real thing. My trial leads moved quite a bit on my back. Make sure you note each day how the trial is going. There was some question for me whether the leads were better at the end of the trial or at the beginning. I said the beginning, the rep thought maybe the end.

Anyway, if you have any questions, let me know and I'll try and answer them.
