Like most of us, I did not want a battery implant so I went with Stimwave scs. Its been permanently placed on my spine about 10 days ago. I do feel a little less pain, but my right foot nerve pain still prevents me from sleeping normal hours, preparing home meals and doing normal tasks. I am disappointed. I was hoping for more relief. My worst pain bursts went from 10 to 9. Plus, I still need pain pills.

Don, thanks for sending this video. Please keep us posted over time, how it is working for you. I did the Scrambler therapy, and in general, my pain has never been as severe again, as it was. I was also able to lower my gabapentin to almost nothing. However, I still have bouts of pain that really are awful. It comes and goes now, and is not nearly as constant. Anyway, I hope so much the Stimwave gets better for you with time. Keep everyone informed. Lori Renee

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

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.

I have been using Stimwave for weeks now and "the jury is still out". I ran into a minor complication so it slowed progress but I will keep everyone informed! I would say by the end of Sept. I will reach an informed decision.

It has been a month and my Stimwave SCS is still not helping much.

Don, I am so sorry to hear that. At this point, do you still give it more time? What is the time frame in which you are supposed to feel results? I wish you the best. Hard to get hopeful, and then let down. Keep in touch here. I think we are more helpful than our doctors. Lori Renee

I hate to admit this but my Stimwave SCS isn't helping much. I think I should have gotten the Boston Scientific SCS. But that one requires the battery being placed under my skin in order to work. My name is Don.

It is a scarey proposition to use the Boston. I hear you loud and clear. Just crazy to get the stimwave and find out it is doing so little. So do you know what you are going to do? Neuropathy is one awful thing. Sorry to hear about the stimwave. Lori Renee

You are better off just trying one great CBD oil, put under your tongue. The oil helps everywhere. I swear by it. Better than the Gabapentin, and other neuropathy meds. Let me know if you want info on a good CBD oil. Lori Renee

@donw200 I use a very good CBD oil, at a high dose. I buy 2500mg., full spectrum CBD oil, from CBDistillery.com The full spectrum oil contains .03% THC, and in theory is better for pain than the one with no THC. It is just a bit more expensive. I take one dropper full. If the pain is more moderate, I take a half dropper. The company is quite reputable, and award winning. Everything is third party tested. How is your stim router as time passes????? Good luck, Don Lori R.
