If you have read any of my posts I am going through stimulator troubles as well. one of my leads has slipped  rendering the thing almost useless. As you said Stella the sensations can be terrible especially during positional changes. I can be doing well, sit down to eat supper, get up and almost drawl up into a ball before getting the thing shut off. Did the paddle lead help the positional changes in stimulation which can be subtle or knee bending. I feel the paddle lead should help with that as do the docs. The drawback for me to have the paddle lead put in is that I will have to travel to one of two other states from where I live. As I understand it the number of good surgeons to do the procedure is very limited. My pain is neuropathic for the most part. I had a horribly failed back surgery which left me with severe nerve damage on my left side. I have to use a quad cane and a big leg brace to get around and my back pain is even worse. The only pain that has improved is the left leg but that too is getting worse. Thanks for your posts. Keep us all posted on what you do. I should be making the move soon.
