Recently the pain is so bad that right now I'm not working (standing and walking 80% of the day was killing me). I was just wondering if anyone has had the SCS, and what kind of success or problems you have had. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have RSD in my feet and have a scs. It helped but not as much as I'd hoped. Part of the problem is that the stimulation went all the way down my leg to reach my foot , and since there wasn't a problem with my leg, it was ann oying. Where is your RSD?
