I suffer from excruciating ibs pain on virtually a daily basis. I've tried everything under the sun and nothing helps apart from a tens machine. Although this doesn't always take away the pain completely, it does help around 50% of the time, which is the best I can hope for right now. The trouble is that the only tens machine powerful enough to help with the pain is the ACTICARE TSE/TENS. I've tried other tens machines [even MAMA tens for childbirth!!!], but none of them are near as powerful as the Acticare. Now I'm extremely worried as I've been told that Acticare are no longer manufacturing this device and as I've been using this for a fair number of years, I don't know how I'll cope with the pain if it breaks down. Can you possibly tell me if there are any other powerful tens machines available in the UK or will I even be forced to buy from overseas? The pain tortures me like nothing on earth and I really don't know how I'll manage to survive without at least some adequate pain relief.
