For Diabetic Use Patient Blog:

 


I was  How Does TENS Control Pain?  Sticky patches (electrodes) are attached to the skin, and small electrical impulses are delivered to underlying nerve fibers. This works in two ways. The first is through endorphins. The body has its own mechanisms for suppressing pain. It releases natural chemicals called endorphins in the brain, which act as pain relieving substances. TENS units can activate this mechanism. Secondly, the electrical stimulation of the nerve fibers through the electrodes can actually block a pain signal from being carried all the way to the brain. If it is blocked, the pain is not felt. Many physicians use TENS in their offices to help patients with pain management. If the therapy works for the patient, he or she may be a candidate to either rent or buy his or her own TENS unit. Patients who use TENS units may experience significant pain relief, while at the same time engaging in a therapy that is drug-free.  For Diabetic Use Patient Blog: I was visiting the doctors for the usual 6 monthly diabetic clinic, when the new doc asked if I had ever tried a T.E.N.S unit for the pain. He went on to explain that a TENS machine (Transcutanious Electrical Nerve Stimulation) can in some case help with the pain. To cut a long story short, I took a unit home and gave it a try. The placement of the pads on your body is a bit of trial and error and I had about 6 different postions to try out. Each placement had to remain on the body for about 2 hrs before I could try another. I had tried 5 different positions without any joy so dis-heartingly tried the last position. I was about 10 mins into it when suddenly my feet started to feel like they were being licked by angels. For the first time in 7 years the pain just vanished. I couldnt believe it. The burning went, the pins and needles stopped, the digging glass sensation ceased. There was not an iota of pain anywhere in either foot. I could even wiggle my toes which haven't moved in almost four years. You wouldnt believe the size of the grin on my face. I leave the TENS attached and switched on for about 8 hours (its a very small machine and I can clip it to my belt) then take it off. I am then pain free for about 48hrs or so. I switch it back on for about half an hour three times a day just to give it a boost and I'm pretty much pain free permanently. So if any of you are finding your meds aren't working for the pain, I really recommend that you give a TENS machine a try.  visiting the doctors for the usual 6 monthly diabetic clinic, when the new doc asked if I had ever tried a T.E.N.S unit for the pain.
