Why didn't the TENS unit work instead of opioids?
I tried out a TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) because of lower back pain and it didn’t work at all for me, I just thought it was annoying. Why didn't it help me? What reasons could there be? I really thought it would work so I could stop taking opioids.Anyone who have the same experience?
