Spinal Stimulator

Please share your experiences, successes, and failures in using non-drug therapies for RLS/WED (methods of relief that don't involve swallowing or injecting anything), including compression, heat, light, stretches, acupuncture, etc. Also under this heading, medical interventions that don't involve the administration of a medicine to the body (eg. varicose-vein operations, deep-brain stimulation).

Excellent! Who would have guessed! They must have recognized the distress you had as soon as it was removed. Good on them.

Glad to hear it is working out well so far! Please keep us updated on how it goes!
Also, sorry if you've answered this elsewhere, but did your doc want to try the stimulator specifically for RLS or is it primarily for chronic pain or some other condition? This treatment seems very promising, but it was my understanding they werent ready to trial it for solely RLS.
Thank you!

They are considering it for chronic pain. Having RLS gone is a bonus.
