Hi, I recently posted about painkillers (for Femoral Nerve pain in my case) and the myriad potential side effects including heart rhythm problems, which put me off taking any painkillers at all.
At an appointment with a physiotherapist today I asked if a home TENS Machine could be used to alleviate the almost constant pain in my leg. He though that could be useful. I've just been looking at purchasing a machine, but reading some general info. it recommends not to use one for people with heart rhythm problems.
Anybody on the Forum had any experience of TENS machines and the effects on heart rhythm?
Any advise appreciated.
I use the Beurer EM70 - no impact at all on paroxysmal AF. But then my AF is highly controlled and for the most part gives me no grief these days. I may get 3 or 4 or 5 wobblies a year, sometimes lasting 2 hours or so, once or twice 15 hours. This year so far only one heart wobbly. Use the EM70 on knees and soft tissue around shoulders.
