Some of the downsides are a little unnerving like:
"The stimulus parameters should be adjusted to produce a deep, strong , and if possible, aching sensation at the attachment point of the electrodes."
"About 10% of patients have experienced some burning sensations even at low intensities."
"Output Intensity knobs are turned fully to the left to ensure that the patient does not accidently receive a shock."
Now I'm nervous about trying this out for the first time myself in case I get it all wrong so I may just use the script that Mark gave me which states that I would benefit from a trial of Codetron and how to use it because I have chronic back and bone pain. Is he admitting I do have chronic pain now and I wonder if this may be my segway to discussing adhesions with him?
I'm off to bed now because I am soooooo tired and will reply to all your emails tomorrow, OK?
