New tens unit!!!

Sep 19, 2016 8:25 PM

Just got my new tens unit that I ordered on Amazon!! I really like it! Depending on the area of course! Feels great on the lower back and shoulders but painful on my arms which are always in pain( tendonitis) even after having surgery on my left arm!! Thank you to everyone who has given me advice and information! Wishing everyone a great night pain free!( If only) okay wishing everyone less pain and a good night sleep!

Anna, I am so glad it's working for you! Mine has been a help when things haven't been helpful and other times depending on what type of pain I am having it won't touch it. If I could dance I'd be doing a happy dance for you! 🌞🌹

I'm supposed to be gettinga tens unit too. DOES IT JUST RELAX THE MUSCLES OR HELP WTH PAIN?

Unlucky yes it is wireless it is battery operated! Sjogrens77 thanks for the happy dance!! Tina5 it doesn't really help with pain but does relaxe muscles but sometimes the pain is worse when our muscles are tensed up! We are always in pain so our entire body tenses up! It's helped me relax so I can fall asleep easier!! I will take any benefit!! Have a great day everyone!πŸŒ·πŸŒΉπŸ’πŸŒΈπŸ’•

A little but not enough. I've had to take long breaks between using my tablet or doing other activities. I think the PT and home exercises are a waste of time... But I have to jump through the hoops...ugh! I hope you're having a good day!

Mine has arrived....whoop excited :) its got 2 units so i can do my lower back and shoulder/top of back area....as its wireless it did seem to cut out, but think that was because there was intereferences between the units and the remote, so iv tucked the remote into my leggings near my back and all going good now....
