    This may be a dumb question, but I have to ask it.

    Has anybody ever used a TENS unit on their head for headache relief? Is it even safe to do?

    My wife has one for her back and I have often wondered if I could use it for my terrific headaches, but have been afraid to.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Hi, I just purchased a TENS unit and good thing I read the whole instruction booklet as it said do not use on neck or head and my pain was severe in lower neck, but good for the upper and lower back!

    I thought they probably couldn't be used on or near the head, but I just had to ask.

    Now I know!
