I bought the Lloyds version last week and I have to say that it's the best £10 I've spent in a long time.

I was originally skeptical about these sort of things; didn't think they'd do much.

However, after straining my back lifting bags of sand at the weekend I thought I'd give it a go.

After 15 minutes with the pads strapped to my lower back (and much hilarity for the rest of my family as I spasmodically jerked around as the program changed from 'ticking' through 'massage' and 'pain relief') I couldn't believe it. Couldn't feel the pain at all. I kid you not.

Er Indoors tried it on her frozen shoulder problem next and after the 15 program she couldn't feel the pain either. Amazed.

Even mum and two aunties tried it and afterwards both went and bought one.

The Lloyds one is a tenner but only uses two pads and not the four that the Boots one comes with. In Lloyds it is marketed as the Solpadeine TENS machine and comes in a bright, red, shiney box.

If you've got any sort of muscle pain then I'd advise anybody to give TENS a go (and I can't remember seeing my family laugh so much either as the 'victim' jerks about a bit).

Dave,
My right knee is the other area I tried it on and with similar exellent results. Hurt my knee playing rugby several years back and it's never been the same since.

Tried this TENS machine on it and after 15 minutes of Coronation St. I was up and doing squats with it for the first time in months.

BUT THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

The machine only takes the pain away, doesn't cure the root of the pain. With back strain it was fine as it gave the muscles time to heal again after a heavy sand bag moving workout and whilst they were healing I couldn't feel it so that was great.

However, with my knee it is a long term thing that I'm going to have to have surgery on and this lulled me into a false sense of security. So whilst you might not feel the pain if you start doing some rigorous exercise you are still aggrevating the joint problem.

Hence, 2 days later I was in a bit of trouble with some extra pain due to overdoing it.

But, no problem, put the machine back on my knee for 15 mins, the pain went away, and I vowed to take it easier for a while!

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks but I've had surgery and the only solution to my problems now are complete knee replacement (both) so something that can take away the pain sometimes is ideal. Especially since I can't take pain killers anymore since they damaged my stomach.

Thanks for the info, as I said earlier I'll get getting one of these later this week. (the 10 quid one) to try.
