Has anyone tried Scrambler Therapy for neuropathy or for pain?
I have read about this device and I’m hoping someone can attest to its effectiveness for idiopathic neuropathy. I've read success stories and information online. Apparently insurance does not cover treatments, to the tune of $250 for the customary recommended 10 consecutive weekdays.

Acupuncture helped me more than the scrambler but you need to find the right one. The scrambler helped me with foot pain but it's no longer covered by my insurance.
Update – My last scrambler treatment was 9/14. As expected, the pain has returned. My doc told me this is common and that most people do need to return for a second set of treatments. I just didn't expect it to return this quickly. I thought it would be about three months. Until about 10 days ago, it was a slow, incremental increase in pain, still far below where it had been before treatment. Then it began to increase more rapidly. Not too bad in the mornings but increasing quite a bit in the afternoons. Over the past three days, it has been nearly as bad as it was before I began treatment. With the return of the pain, the exhaustion has returned. Oh well. Time to schedule my "booster" sessions.
Has anyone heard of acupuncture helping restless legs?I've had that so bad all night and still this morning the neuropathy pain with it is unbearable.
That’s terrible! Some of this stuff is just so vague and unscientific and always ends up with someone getting $$$$$’s!!
Just to say (to Sidemounts) what you describe is not Scrambler therapy.
To Jernock – there is actually a fair amount of scientific study on Scrambler, published in peer-reviewed journals. The doctor I see is an author or co-author on several of them. He is at a major research hospital.
