TENS unit
Just wanted to let you know I went and had the TENS unit explained to me today and she put it on.  She couldn't believe how swollen my neck was and could understand why there was so much pain.  She said I should notice a difference since this unit bring's now swelling.  I'm so anxious to get some relieve.  I'll keep you updated on how it is working.  She said to use it 30min.  It auto. shut's off wait an hour and turn it on again.  So I am waiting for my 2nd treatment.  Just having it on when I was driving home I could feel some relief.  The technology we have today.  Just asking for prayer's that this will work.  I have a positive outlook on it.  Something has to work right?  Hope everyone is having a good day.

Some info on TENS.

I find it helps with pain but be careful if you have sensory impalement as it can cause burns (see Potential Dangers on the above web page)

Thanks so much.  So far so good.  It has relieved some swelling and with swelling that mean's less pain.  I have been trying to stay away from heat because I think I was using it to much and as the therpist said.  If you use heat to much.  Your muscles will be tight when they cool down.  I have seen a difference thanks.  Happy Thanksgiving also. Enjoy your day.
