I SUFFERED FROM SEVERE RAW BURNING PAIN IN MY LOWER BUTTOCH AND DOWN THE BACK OF BOTH LEGS FOR 17+ YEARS. MY MEDICATIONS WERE CHANGED NUMEROUS TIMES, BUT GAVE NO POSITIVE RESULTS.

THIS PAST MARCH I HAD A SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR IMPLANTED. MY DOCTOR SAID THEY LOOKED FOR SOMEWHERE AROUND 75% PAINFREE. WELL, I AM NOW 100% PAINFREE. I CONSIDER IT A MIRACLE. YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW IT FELT AFTER BEING IN CONSTANT PAIN FOR SO LONG.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE THAT SUFFERS FROM CHRONIC PAIN ANYWHERE ON THEIR BODY, RESEARCH THE SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR.
