TENS UNIT

Does anyone know if a small tens unit is on market? I have used them for back problem but I have not seen smaller ones - maybe could be placed near the ear or neck area. Thanks

Great post precious, did you come across the TENS idea reading th emails on my journal or is this something you've been considering for some time? Glad to see someone posting it up.

There are Electrical therapies using TENS therapy for tinnitus at the Atlanta Ear Clinic in GA.

Ledi, look up TENS on google. Let us know what your plans are with the a smaller TENS unit, pre3.

The tens unit I was given by my head, neck and jaw specialist is listed as a T2 unit from Electo Medical Solutions in Palm Harbor, Florida.
I was told that the elec stimulation of the muscles associated with tmj is helpful in reducing the pain and soreness, but not the tinnitus.
If I put it anywhere near my ears (within 3-4 inches) it can be pretty aggravating for the tinnitus. I do not think it is intended to treat tinnitus, but if it helps, more power to us.

Precious, please let me know if you found one yet. I have one that I don't use but am not sure if its the size you are looking for.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
