@busterbrown You don't increase your pain it just relaxes the muscle so you nerve can be released also if it is affected . Just increase the amount to as much as you can stand dont go beyond this or you cause more harm them good . I use mine more on my back and legs I don't need it for feet but go only as high as you are comfortable with it . Am anxious to hear about this stimulator

@dmho Wow I didnt know he was on so many meds. Im late at responding as Im on the west coast.. If this will help you there is a website drugs.com that list the meds , interactions, and side effects of meds. The pharmacist can be of great help to you also about the meds .your Dad is on . Since you don't live close to him it may be of benefit for you to look up these drugs for interactions and side effects. His Dr should be aware of all his meds . also . Hope this helps

@dmho Welcome to connect we arent Dr,s but help with our own experience with your problem. Have you gone to a Dr about this? or your parents.? We are all isolated now with covid and feel some depression I cant address to how you feel as I dont have this but the loneliness is enough to be depressed . Does your Dad just get out doors into nature and listen to the sounds around him of life of birds and other animals smell the flowers does any of this help him to feel a bit better . I pray you will find something for your Dad as you are a very caring son I can tell. Hopefully you will receive some more information from others who can address this better then I can , Thoughts and prayers to you and yours.
