Thank You all for your response. I do have some anxiety RE the tens unit that will be used on me tonight. A little info about myself to properly introduce me. I'm a 33yr old wife and mother of two teen daughters. I sufferred an injury in May of 2007. After a very painfull 5 months of OT I was dx with this horrible disorder and started treatment for it in Oct. The lyrica is not helping me at all. I am going through the process of having a SCS done. This disorder has already spread to my entire left arm and shoulder. My arm and hand has significantly shrunk and is always blue, red purple and COLD. I am also a child care provider, I work out of my home and am STRUGGLING with it. I take care of 6 children ages 7months to 3yrs. I'm in sooo much pain and working makes it 10 times worse for me. But I'm trying the best I can to provide for my family as they depend on my income. My DR. wants me to stop but I need support my family. I work 9 hrs a day and when I'm done I take my pain killers and fall apart basically. I give you all thanks for your help. Just being able to talk to others that know how i'm feelling helps me mentally. I will let you know how the tens unit works for me or not LOL..... I see alot of you have had this disorder for quite some time and continue to go through so much.. I have only had it for 9 months and to think I will go the rest of my life like this frightens me and makes me very sad for all of us. Some kind of lottery we hit. Thanks again hugs to you all and I hope to talk to you again real soon... :-);). I will think of you all as my newly found saving grace. You are all angels in my eyes. :angel:
