I am sorry to hear about
your situation....Just wanted to say that sometimes it can be slower on the boards over the weekend...so just in case you don't get too many responses.
I personally don't have any experience with the SCS but have heard that the leads moving certainly happens at times.
I'm glad that you have an appt. with the Drs. who put in the unit as that is what I was going to recommend that you see them right away.
Does the unit have a 24 hour number to call for questions as well? They probably can't do too much as they can't give actual medical advice....but it's worth a shot.
I would think that if the unit itself or leads are pushing on a nerve to cause it to be numb...then worse case scenario is to take it all out. It usually takes quite a while to have any type of permanent damage so if you just noticed this recently then that is good.
Obviously none of us here are Drs. so just giving thoughts/suggestions...
Please update us when you go see the Drs. and what they say...
