I have just written to Tenscare UK, who make the Tens machine I have used for pain relief for several years now, asking their advice on my current CMT difficulty which is numb ankles with loss of sensitivity.
They are hesitant to make a definitive statement because - surprise surprise - they don't really know much about CMT, but they did suggest that the Tens/EMS type machine - in this case the Sport - might be beneficial because the EMS side of it is directed at muscle issues while the TENS side is directed at nerves...best of both worlds so-to-speak.
Has anyone had any experience with this type of therapy? If so I would love to hear from you - whether your experience was positive or negative - because, although I quite fancy getting one of these machines and having a go for myself (after all, what harm can it do?) they are not exactly cheap and I don't want to waste £70 without asking the question first.
