    We got a tens a while back and when I tried it the sensation really hurt me.

    Then hubby got the Intrasound (which is similar to ultrasound used in hospitals)and I tried that but did not feel any relief(it says helps with fibro).

    But I was pottering in the garden yesterday got back pain.Today I could not move!!!Could not get out of bed.The pain made me feel sick.
    I took strong painkillers and used painkilling cream.But no good.

    Hubby said try the Tens.

    Well I was a bit fearful after the last time but I tried it........ and Lo and Behold ...........I feel so much better!!!!!!!!!!!
    I cannot believe it has helped me!

    I have used it 3 times today and I can actually walk now.

    I will let you know if the pain relief continues.I hope so lol.

    I'm glad it helped you. I just wrote on another thread about how it didn't work for me but it did seem to help some of my back pain sometimes. Whatever works is wonderful!
