TENS unit helped anyone with neuropathic pain

Hi,
I was just fitted with a TENS unit today and I was wondering if anyone else on here has some experience with using one. Any replies or suggestions appreicated.

Brian

Re: TENS unit helped anyone with neuropathic pain

love mine.it was a true godsend for my churning burning RSD pain i have in my knee.it is actually the ONLY thing that will knock down a good solid flare for me.til then,nothing actually even touched it.the electrode placement tho is the key.just where are you planning to use it?the most important thing is crisscrossing those trodes and wires so the signal actually goes "thru' the pain area.i wouldn't part with mine if you paid me now.it works that good on my knee pain.like i said,nothing would even begin to knock down that burning hell i have in there til i tried the tens.if you have any questions brian,just hollar.marcia
