Has anyone tried the HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulation Device?
Has anyone tried a device called HF10 ? It’s a device which stimulates your spinal cord to help relieve back and leg pain. After a trial period of about a week, if the patient is achieving good results the device is implanted in the person. My pain management doctor has recommended it to me for arm and hand nerve pain. I would like to hear from anyone who has used this device and especially from anyone who has used it for arm and hand pain. Thank you.

To lindes. This is the story every one of us should have. Your picture is the right one, what is wrong with our pictures ? ?
It might be different, because I am a medical doctor, and I am a very assertive and confident person. I don't take NO for an answer. But all of you could follow my example, and insist to have the thing working for you in the right way!
My Medtronics has to be charged every day, if not it will die. I have three settings which change automatically (standing, sitting, and laying down). I adjusted each of those settings up and I am not getting the relief as the test unit.
How long ago did you have it implanted? Where was your pain located. Thanks
I am happy to hear that Medtronic works for you. Do you have to charge it everyday?
It didn't work that well for me. I have chronic pain in my toes. I got about 25% relief not enough to keep it in. . I didn't like the parathesia either. So, I had it removed after 2 months.
Hopefully they will get it straight for you!
Not with my standard setting, I get a bit more than 2 days out of it. I like to read in bed, and charge the thing while I am reading
