spinal cord stimulator and RLS

Postby jeanneb » Wed Aug 14, 2019 7:34 pm

Does anyone have any experience with a spinal cord stimulator for their restless legs? Would appreciate any comments from anyone that has had a spinal cord stimulator implanted for back pain, and/or spinal stenosis, and/or pinched nerves. Did you see a change in your restless legs after having the stimulator implanted?

Thank you for any comments.

It hadn't come up here very often. I hope someone has some information for you.
