Lori, yes this does not sound good so far. It would be nice to read or hear what a consensus is among a large number of people who have been through it, to get a sense of if there are any patterns in the results people have had, or how long it can take to get to some significant good results. Perhaps it will take a certain amount of time, more than it has been so far. And maybe you just haven't hit the magic voltage level yet. Don't lose hope. I am sending as many positive, loving healing vibes as I can your way. And you should send some to yourself as well. Do hang in there. If possible perhaps your husband can massage your feet. I find with Linda, all hands-on touch, massage, etc. can really produce some positive energy transfer sometimes. Hang in there sweetheart, we are all pulling for you, don't lose hope. Hank

@jesfactsmon Hi Hank, I love hearing you here. Such a good man. You are right in wishing I could have read a consensus among a lot of people who have tried this thing. I did find a real neuro stimulator forum, where real people talked about their various stimulators, but the DRG was not among the discussion. I did learn how difficult stimulators can be, in general. Even the ones that are really advertised did not get great reviews. Had I to do it again, I would have asked my doc for real patients to talk to. God knows if he could do that. I just know I had a few real good days on the trial. I even remember being pain free one night, which is unheard of for me. Maybe in time I will improve. As far as feet rubs from my husband, frankly, he does not have tremendous compassion. Not in his wiring. Bluntly honest here, and foot rubs are not going to happen. I actually bought a foot messager that did not reach the toes or balls of my feet where all the pain is, so it was pretty worthless.
