Fibro and SCS??

Jun 07, 2017 11:53 PM

Since anyone that has fibromyalgia also have a spinal cord stimulator implanted? I have multiple back issues and we are headed towards the spinal cord stimulator but I'm worried it may make my fibro do weird stuff. Anybody have experience with this?

Thanks!

My mother has a Boston-scientific spinal cord stimulator. She never had a bad expierence with her Fibro and SCS.

I know someone who has a spinal cord stimulator, she said it helped but it died after 3 years. So its nust there doing nothing now. I almost got one, since i have head pain it would have been in my shoulder and wires up my neck, but i decided against it because it sends out vibrations. so if u r sensitive to vibrations, like i am, it would not be good for u.
Best of luck with what ever u decide!
