Morning peeps,
Hope everyone is having a light pain day. Just got done with pain management this morning. Pretty much at the end of what we can do medically for back pain, but that does not deter me. I had to kind of beg, but got a script for a home tens unit for chronic low back pain. Yay!!! Anybody have any ideas of what I should be looking for? Thanks much!

Amanda, mine is called Intensity 10. It's a professional strength unit with so many settings that you'll never run out. It also has different setting for different areas of the body and holds 2 sets of leads. I'll find the paperwork and give you the phone number for the company and you can check with your insurance company how much they pay for DME. This unit was around $1000 and cost me nothing. They also send supplies at no charge for life. It works well. Catch up with you later. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻

I could use mine up to 23 hours a day. Yes, I needed it that often. At first, couldn't notice a difference, but the effects eventually kicked in. Had been in so much pain, I couldn't hold anything over 5 pounds. No one could touch me without pain going through a entire body. After several days, pain began to ease up. It never took all the pain away, but it sure helped.
