I recently tried a tens machine whilst in America and had a provoked fit. The whole episode was very scary. I'm wondering does this now make me prone to another fit or not and was it simply caused by the Tens machine. The pads were placed either side of the base of my neck and i was wondered if it could have been the placement of the pads. So far I have taken no further action as it seems that it was likely the Tens machine but why would this have happened to me as my husband also tried it. Thanks for any advice.
