Spinal Cord Stimulator

HI, I am 27 and I have two herniated discs in my lower back that are causing a great deal of pain. My pain doctor wants to try and get my insurance to cover a spinal cord stimulater to be put in my lower back surgically. I've been on pain meds and am doing physical therapy. I'm going to try water therapy. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has had bad reactions to the stimulator or good reactions. I'm on disability because I also have crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and a seizure disorder. I fear that the stimulator will mess with my seizures or cause them. I have found some basic info on the internet, but I want to know what other people have experienced using it, and if I'm too young and should wait a few years.
Thank you so much.

Hi Shannbud and welcome to WebMD,

I encourage you to repost your message on our Pain Management board and while you're waiting for responses there, do some reading; there are some previous discussions on the SCS there.

Sorry, I didn't realize there was a pain discussion board. I just wanted to hear specifically from other women who have experienced anything similar to what I am experiencing. Does this mean everything I already wrote isn't posted because I posted it wrong? Thank you for letting me know about this. I've never posted before.

Sincerely, Shannbud
