Mar 2, 2018 · Complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy in Chronic Pain

I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator from Medtronics, backed by a team of great people. I recommend it to anyone! But if you decide it's for you, know this: You will hate it for the first 2 weeks. That's okay. Work with your team and your implant controls to find a good place. Do EXACTLY what your Dr says (he's done more SCS's than you can imagine). If he says "Don't bend over" or "Don't lift anything heavy", then DON'T!!!! The SCS takes care of anywhere from 80-90% of the pain in my arms. I can also scrunch my neck down and increase the strength of coverage AND extend it down to my feet.

Hey! I just want to check to see how you’re doing. Mariah

Thanks for the Cymbalta info. Losing memory is excruciating- mimics Alzheimers. I already have those issues from other current meds, so don’t want to add to it!

Wow! That’s great!! I don’t know of anything better than Lyrica right now. My implant is 14 years old and still ticking along. That combo gets me through. I wish your implant could go on…..
