    not sure if i should buy this or not - i suffer from fibromyalgia and marfan syndrome - both give me a great deal of all over pain and fatiuge. i seen this in my local boots, read the leaflet and it says its good for fatiuge and fibromyalga.
    thing is, i wanted to know if anyone had any experience of these before i shell out £88. i cant seem to find any reviews anywhere. can someone please advise me?

    many thanks x

    lol - typical!
    thanks for your advice x

    There may be something in it but I would get advice before spending money on it.
    I had disc problems some years ago and was going through some pretty intensive physio and they plugged me into a TENS machine, I did get some relief from this at the time and when I found I could buy one for £60 I snapped it up, problem was that I never got anything from that home device and just wasted time and money.
    I am not saying this would be the same but few words with someone who knows would be a good idea...

    thats what i thought - hopefully someone who reads this might know?
    i also have a tens, was a waste of money!

    Have you tried a Tens machine? I have fibromyalgia too and this helps on the days its my lower neck and shoulders that are affected.

    doh just seen above post!

    if it doesnt do what it is supposed to then surely you can return it, boots are pretty good at returns

    me thinks that s a good idea!

    If you are looking for complete relief from pain I don't think you'll get that entirely but TENS should *ease* it by helping to block the pain signals. Make sure you get one that doesn't affect your mobility too much.

    majority of the pain i get is all over - like an ache like pain, think the tens is more for acute pain, probably the same with the intrasound thingymebob. if anyone knows of any other methods of pain releif please let me know! (fed up of rattling with all the tablets!lol!)

    i have heard that acupuncture can help with pain. i have no idea if it works myself but it might be an idea if you're willing to try it.

    My husband damaged the disks in his spine and used to see masseusses ( good job i'm not jealous lol ) have physiotherapy and certin types of back manipulation. He would have done anything for the pain relief at the time.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do x x

    Might be wrong but dont think you would be able to return a TENS machine. Not if it is like those I know. If there are sticky pads to be attatched to body they would only take back if you could prove it was faulty in some way.

    cant TENS still be hired?

    hiring is not worth it, i picked up my solpadine one for £12 and it works a treat for the purpose I need it, ie cinema, long journeys etc. where I cant just get up and move around, if the cable comes loose though DO NOT reattach the pads while the unit is on, for some reason it spikes the power and is really bad!
