Stimwave user here: What's been your experience?
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.

Clicking on "reply" works just fine, @donw200.
Is this something you have discussed with your neurologist – trying out a different wireless pain relief device? If so, what does he or she say about the insurance coverage and whether they would be willing to help you get the coverage?
Yes they are helping me get the B.S. scs. They call it a "revision"— health insurance lingo.
It doesn't sound like it was all that much help, iunfortunately.
@rstollery – do you mean it doesn't sound like the wireless pain relief device was all that much help for @donw200?
Have you also used one? If so, how did it go for you?
Lori, I would very much appreciate learning what brand/type of sublingual CBD is working for your neuropathic foot pain. I have the same symptoms as you describe. Thank you, Terry
My spouse is a 100 disabled veteran sick and tired of pain. It runs our life everyday. But if u are looking for a good oil to put on your joints, it sounds weird but try pure peppermint oil. It really helps and it's cheap. Rub it on your spots and it feels like it goes through the bone and muscle. And heats up and lasts awhile. My husband still has alot of pain but he swears by it. Especially when he adds a heating pad. He has no cartridge in his 4 lower vertebrae and has myofascial trigger point disease all over his upper back going down to his rib cage. I go through peppermint oil like its water that's how much it helps him. Plus my daughter has a 47 degree angle and her spine from scoliosis and it helps her to. I hope it helps. we like to try all natural stuff since we've already tried the invasive pain medicine stuff.
Try pure peppermint oil. It goes right through the bone and muscle. And it naturally heats up.
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.
And if u want to try the kratom make sure it's pill form and make sure it's the red strain only. It's the best one for pain. At any head shop or smoke shop should have it. It has the same receptors as pain medicine but it's natural. But not FDA-approved. But it works and helps with other natural remedies
