TENS Units

Posted by bustrbrwn22 @bustrbrwn22, Aug 29, 2020

Does anyone recommend a portable, rechargable TENS unit for pain management? The easier to use the better, trying to go to the bathroom a dozen times a night and adjusting all the sticky nodes is very frustrating, too. I had one that helped with my sciatica pain but was too cumbersome to continue using and it wore out quite quicky.

😲. Jen, have been there too, many times over the years. So scary! Am currently having to find a new PCP. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Sunnyflower. 🤗🌹🙏

@lorirenee1 I have a PCP that came highly recommended. I need to find a different one. This one has no compassion or bedside manner. If I ask for help she’ll typically say look for a specialist but won’t recommend one.

Hi Cathy, are they heavy? My ice gels are long enough to wrap around my leg and more. They are very heavy for me but sooo soft! Glad to hear you're not in any danger! All the best, Sunnyflower

I just weighed one of my ice packs on my digital kitchen scale . It weighs 1 lb. 10 oz. The brand I have is ThermiPAQ. I bought them at my local Walmart but they have raised their price a lot. I've seen the same thing online at Amazon for one at a much lower price. Mine is Medium size 6×12 but the slightly larger one at Amazon (8×14) is only $9.35. These are 2.25 lb. You should shop around to find what you want. My Medium size does not wrap the entire circumference of my leg with the icy part but it is still effective. There are other brands of the same thing.

I bought a TENS unit in HI last February. It includes 2 socks with copper wires interwoven into the fabric and sandals which spread the current over my left foot which has SFPN. The relief from tingling and pain is helpful. The vendor trades as 7-8-9-TENS. Thanks for asking.
