Bud Baker Posted March 3, 2012 Share Posted March 3, 2012 Good morning, everyone! It was 40 degrees when I got up this morning. Forecast high is 61. That's a lot cooler than it's been the last few days. We had a cold front come in yesterday morning. KW Judy, like Lillian said, a TENS unit uses electrical impulses to help with pain. Electrical impulses, it seems, can interfere with pain signals going from a nerve to the brain. A TENS unit hooks to you with sticky electrodes (like those they use when they do an EKG). The VA gave me a TENS unit shortly after I signed up for VA health care in 2002. I used it the next few months, then never since until now. It's a reminder that it had been over 9 years since I tweaked my back this badly. My back steadily improved all week. I did a 25 mile bike ride on Thursday and spent yesterday fishing. So, I was only off the bike 5 days, and only went a week without fishing. I need to be very careful with my back for a while yet, but it looks like the worst is over. Time for me to get busy. Have a great Saturday, everyone! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
