Hi Don, I am Lori, and I have really bad peripheral neuropathy in my feet. I have tried so many things to help me, that it is crazy. However, I have never heard of that Stim Wave. What is it, and what kind of doctor puts it on your body? Also, one of the only things that helps me, is Kratom. If you want to know about this leaf, let me know. It does help pain. Lori Renee

Hi, @lorirenee1 – I can imagine that having bad pain in your feet and trying so many things to help you without success must indeed be crazy. I am glad to hear you are finding some measure of relief. Just wanted to point out this FDA warning on kratom, however, so members can be aware https://www.fda.gov/news-events/public-health-focus/fda-and-kratom.

lorirenee – what treatments have you tried that were not fruitful for your pain?

@donw200 – if you could tell a bit more about the wireless spinal cord and peripheral nerve stimulation you went through, as lorirenee requested, that would be great.

Stimwave and several other medical device companies make SCS devices (spinal cord stimulater) that requires a specialist doctor to attach a very thin cord to the spine (an out patient minor medical procedure) and a hand-remote control unit in order for the patient to have more control over their pain. They are also made by Boston Scientific.

Stimwave and other companies have been using SCS (spinal cord stimulation) for pain. Boston Scientific too. You can access their web sites and find a dr. —-most insurance companies pay. The companies compete so compare. Pain dr.s usually work with them.

If you do want to try the kratom make sure it's the red strain only. It's the most effective. In pill form from any head shop or smoke shop in your area.

The kratom u use is it the red strain? Pill form? My husband is a 100 percent disabled veteran and has been on everything from morphine to muscle relaxers. Kratom and pure peppermint oil helps alot. The red strain kratom is the best for pain. and the pure peppermint oil is so strong that it goes through the bone and muscle for long periods of time and it heats up. It also helps to use heating pads everywhere in your house. Massage therapy on people with neurological problems makes it worse I believe it like opens up receptors that should be closed.
