Amazing for muscle pain caused by inflammation and spasms!

Nov 11, 2016 6:17 PM

I want to share this amazing machine my doctor told me about, and I purchased on Amazon for $27 and some change, I received it today! After having terrible inflammation and spasms in my neck causing terrible pain down my left arm and my neck was swollen looking like the incredible hulk, and I've been taking Prednisone, Lioresal, and hydrocodone, and still nothing was working, so let me tell you what this amazing machine did!
After applying it to my neck muscles and around the shoulder and turning it up as far as I could handle for about 45 minutes I had instant relief! It send electronic pulses to the nerves in your muscles and relaxes them and eliminates the pain instantly! I love it so much I had to share it with you all who are suffering just like me! You can use it on your back, hips, shoulders, knees, arms, basically anywhere except eyes, head and mouth!
So please if you are in pain do to Inflammation and Spasms, you've got to try this miracle machine out! I hope this helps someone out there like it did me!😀

Always I love reading all your post or comments you are so funny I always get a kick off of things you say you have a great personality😀

27$a great deal! Glad you found it and find relief! I'm on my 4rd on! They have come a long way! The first one, so chunky and batteries, bought 4 of them at a medical conference early Summer and love it! Only wish I could afford wireless and could do 2 different pulses at same time!
Some days a real life saver, if only for the distraction!!

TENS machines help some people, there are a lot of us on here that tried tens machines but they aren't helpful. Really good that you have had some relief from your pain using a tens machine 😊

Tens units are awesome. I got my first one 10 years ago I love it!

I have to be careful with mine as sometimes it helps and is amazing and other times it irritates and makes the pain a little worse!
I'm so happy that you've found some relief with it xx

Thanks for the post at that price it's worth a try ... I'll order one today. Perfect since I can try a round of muscle spasms are starting up ... hooray for overdoing it!

Alwayz you do have a great sense of humour and have made me laugh many times when I thought I was in a way that I couldn't laugh. Thank you xx

Oh foggurl, I hope you're able to rest as much as possible today to give you time to recover xx

Well I think I spoke too soon! Yesterday I was feeling great woke up this morning and felt like my back and neck had been ran over by a Mac truck, I can hardly move.😭 Maybe I over did the tens machine idk but I'm miserable, I called my doctor and I'm going in Monday for a MRI, sorry guys hope I didn't mislead anyone!

Nov 12, 2016 4:13 PM

Fibromzpaul I'm soo sorry that's happened. I've found sometimes nothing helps the pain at times especially if you're in a flair.
Sometimes when I use my Tens machine it works and is a miracle but other time it just aggrevates the pain further
I hope find some relief soon xx

Thank you Sezzy, I also had to stop taking the Prednisone after my face was blush red and on fire and I was broke out in hives, then I woke in the middle of the night and felt like I was drunk or drugged, and I've been in and out all day, so doctor said not to take the Baclofen either. I have to say this is the worst I've felt! My upper back is feels bruised and my neck on the left side is so swollen, I hope I get relief soon, I feel like I'm letting my kids and husband down😥

Feeling like that is natural but you have to remember that they love you for who you are not what challenges you face. As long as you try to explain your limitations to them and involve them in helping you with your day to day struggles like helping with chores and spending time with them whether it be playing or doing craft with them up at a table or just reading with them that will show them you love them. I've found that spending time with your family is more important than doing chores, chores can wait family can't.
I really hope that you find some relief soon xx

Thank you Sezzy for those words of encouragement😘

Nov 12, 2016 5:33 PM

I try to help people as much as I'm able thank you.....I've been following my own advice tonight with my youngest but clean up will happen in the morning!!!

As long as you were using the tens unit 10 min on and 10 min off you should be okay. You may have done something else also, sometimes it hard to be sure. Sometimes I sleep wrong and mess my whole body up. I hope you feel better
