I Had To Unplug Myself
The technician that has adjusted my
spinal cord stimulator many times said “Mr. Crosby your nerves are super sensitive.” For this reason my unit can only run so high. It doesn’t take much for me to feel it buzzing strongly like electricity inside. If it buzzes too long I feel like I’m going crazy. Yes, I’ve got to have it for any quality of life. But, generally weekly I’ve got to consider turning it down or off a few hours.
It’s around 1:30pm Saturday and I’ve not even gotten out the bed. Laying here on my side feeling like I’ve got a strong electric current running throughout my body. Having had this internal stimulator almost two years I knew I had to turn it off. Thank God I can now tell the difference between just terrible nerve pain versus over stimulation from this man made highly recommended device.
When over stimulated the vibrations in my legs are constant. The longer this goes on I get very nauseous from vibrations that shake even into my chest. Any sudden sound makes me cringe or jump inside. A door opening, the dog walking on the hard floor, and even my own deep voice can be very bothersome. It typically takes just a few hours of the unit being totally off before all this begins to calms down. Its like I have to be unplugged and then plugged back up to keep going. Being a veteran patient I know longer panic over this matter. I just know it’s now necessary normal in my life. I thank God for this technology and discernment.
