Hello Donna,

Have you had the Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in your hip? A Chiropractor once told me he believed the pain I have is in fact coming from

my back where all the nerve endings are located. If there are people on this site who have the Spinal Cord Stimulator and it is helpng with the pain, please, please, let me know!

So Donna, are you using Lyrical (sp?), Lyrica? If so, is it helping your nerve pain? I used it once and I didn't find that it helped but instead it gave me hot and cold feeling and I couldn't sleep. I'm using Neurontin but it makes me drowsy and doesn't help much anymore.
