    Just read about MENS unit on Medcare Service website & it was recommended over the TENS unit. Anyone know anything about it? I wonder what the differences are?

    I'll do a search but thought if anyone here knew the differences, it would save me typing & sitting at puter. Not being lazy - just in a MAJOR flare.

    Thanks.....Kathi

    I have a TENS unit and use it fairly often for my neck and shoulder pain. I have never heard of the MENS unit so will have to check it out!

    Are you sure that it is a MENS unit? I know when I was in a Pain Clinic for three a few years ago a fellow patient had something similar to my tens but targeted some else perhaps the "M" standing for muscular... I don't know. This worked much better for him. But I have not heard or seen anything like it since.

    I too started laughing, as I thought you made a typo and meant TENS unit.
    No I don't have a men's unit and don't want one either!!
    I have always been such a good driver, and I am not one for running around insisting people pull my finger either. ; )

    I haven't had time to research the MENS unit yet. When I posted it I didn't realize how the post looked!!

    All I know about it is that it gives a lower zap than the TENS unit. They say it takes longer to feel the effects but if you stick with it your pain will stay away longer. With my TEN soon after the unit shust off I have pain again. When I do get time - maybe Sat. nite or Sun. I'll post again & let you all know what I found out!!

    Take care & keep those great sense of humors you have!!..Kathi

    I really messed up the topic title, didn't I? I told my mom what all you naughty women were thinking & she had a real good laugh, too!! Laughter & our sense of humor is something that these DD's just can't take away from us!
