Bit of a long shot but does anyone have a spinal cord stimulator for back and sciatica pain? Have been referred for one but wanting to find out as much as I can before I decide.

I've recently had a spinal cord stimulator trial - I have CRPS in my arm. Going back in July for the permanent one to be fitted.

How did you find it? Did it help your pain? Were you very restricted during the trial?

I'd be interested to know your experience Corey as I also have CRPS in my arm, and after nearly 7 years am now accepting its unlikely to go away
