I use a tens unit but I have chronic daily headache and Migraines. Due to these I always have a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders and so I place the pads on muscle area, and I use it for 15 min with ice. When I was going to the chiropractor they were using them and I asked about it, the told me I could buy it online. I bought mine at amazon.com for $36.00 plus I bought extra pads. because those will wear out after a while. It just helps relieve some of the built up mulsle tension from chronic pain. Going for a massage would be even better, but since I can't afford that, this does help.

Hi! I Use a tens unit for daily migraines it mostly distracts me from some of the pain but that is a good thing. Its better than nothing. I also have some issues with headaches generate by muscle tension in my neck & shoulders so that is where I place the electrodes.

I got the script from my chiropractor also & paid $200 out of pocket plus extra $50 for pads for electrodes. Good Luck!!

I was looking for a tens that i could place on my temples as that is where my continous severe headaches are.

I was wondering if those microcurrant ones can be used like that? I'm still researching.

I do have a regular tens so i will try it again on the neck and shoulder areas and see what that does.

thanks
