I had my trial about 4 months ago and I have to tell you I thought I had found the Holt Grail!
Now more than 3 months in I am suffering more than ever with sever low back pain on a constant basis.
The trial was amazing as well as the first 2 weeks and then it started. I began to get headaches and they told me that I was being over stimulated so we turned it down a bit and they went away and then the back pain came back with a vengeance. When I walk ever now and then it feels as though I'm being shocked and loose all feeling in my waist to my legs and it's not the machine it's the pain and it's so intense at times I fall to my knees!
I went back and forth with Nevro techs to see if they could get me back on track but nothing worked it got so bad that I thought my hip replacement was bad but my Doc who did that said it was not the hip but that it was the left sciatica nerve being over stimulated.
So back to the drawing board and still nothing!
I just went for an MRI and was told that I have severe Arthritis in the L3, L4 joints and that it was that that is causing the pain but a few weeks before the MRI they took xrays and found the left lead had moved almost one vertebra down and I truly believe that that is why I am no longer getting relief and my Doctor keeps saying that it didn't move enough for this to be happening and that the pain is being caused by the Arthritis.
I am now going in for Facet injections this Tuesday this and the meds were the things I wanted to stop with the simulator but the doctor feels this will help and I'm sure it will.
The doctor is also saying that the HF10 will not help the Arthritis pain but I just read on the Arthritis website that they do help??
So this is where I'm confused and I really feel the lead needs to be put back where it was so that it will give me the relief that I had in the beginning not more injections!
