: I have RSD and acute/cronic denervation at my C-5 and C-6 level of my spine. I take 2700mg of Neurotonin a day with some zoloft. The neurotonin is not as effective as it has been, because I have burning sensaytions from my lumbar area to my neck and get stabbing sensations that come and go. I am considering a Spinal cord Stimulator to be inserted to get off the drugs and releive the pain. Any Pros/Cons of such a device would be apprecated. Please E-mail me your responses.

Hi Mark:
I have had three surgeries in my lumbar spine. I have tried everything including neurontin. My doc is also suggesting a spinal cord stimulator. I am trying to do research on it. I have spoken to one woman who says she loves it. It is difficult to judge because everyone suffers pain differently. I noticed that this is an old post. Have you had the procedure since your original post?
Lori
