Pain reduction with TENS

Apr 14, 2018 12:55 AM

Yesterday my TENS device picked up in the hospital.
Immediately upon returning home at different locations where I experience pain through my phybromyalgia treatments
I am cautiously enthusiastic it seems to work.

Has anyone here already experienced and used for a long time?

Hopefully this will work๐Ÿ˜Ž

My mum has fibromyalgia and uses a TENS machine sometimes. It does work as long as you keep the electrical current and pads on, but once you take the TENS machine off it stops working.

I have Osteoarthritis and use my tens unit! And like AmbrielleLyn said it works when it on! Some days it is hard to function and I put mine on and walk around doing housework and might even wear it to the store!

I've tried using a TENS machine for about a month. Unfortunately it didn't help me at all rather the other way around. Whenever I used it my pain got worse after just a few seconds of minutes. But I really hope it works out for you! ๐Ÿ‘

It looks like it has a positive effect.
I am not pain free, but it is a little lightened and I get a bit more energy from it
I've been trying it for a while to date it's positive
My Tens does have an appart program, my mother also has a Tens but not with the same program function
I will keep you informed, if someone is curious about the settings let me know then I try to explain it๐Ÿ˜Ž

My TENS made my pain worse.. am I using it wrong or am I just way more sensitive than I thought with my fibro?

JayBaby,
Have you tried working with a physiotherapist to adjust the settings on the TENS machine? If not, it could be that the settings aren't the right ones for you.

They taught me how to set the tens so that you feel it, but it certainly should not hurt
See attachment in yellow my current setting this is suitable for almost all pain indications

I hope iT also works for more people

Works for me. Use it a couple times a week. But I use a heating pad every day.
