Ok, this is interesting; it feels like I'm wearing my TENS even tho I'm not. How odd!

I've been using a TENS for about a week

I didn't yesterday much or today as life got complicated.

& I am sat here with that whole 'tingling' feeling going on in my back

Blimey I'm odd

What do you use it for? < Curious as I have long-term back pain >
Does it work? Hope you're okay.

Yes it works for long term pain

I was trying exercises but I have CFS & Fibromyalgia so that wasn't working & was causing more pain so the physio suggested this

On the whole I don't think I like the feeling when the little box isn't attached

Sorry don't know anything about either of those conditions - but could it be blood flowing into the area/healing?

Thanks for replying anyway

It faded over night - I'll mention it to the physio when I go

Yes I had this too after using it in labour with ds2! I'm sure it was for a few weeks, and quite painful at times. It would come and go, and eventually faded. Have no idea why though! hmm

At least I know I'm not on my own wink
