  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Chronic pain: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I find that using my TENS unit does help significantly with the fibro muscle pain. I can always tell when I take a break from it, so it must be working that much! :0) I was allergic to the conductive gel, I think, so I quit using that so I no longer get an itchy rash where the electrodes go. I still give my give a break every other day and keep the unit off for a day and then restart it. But I definitely think it's a worthwhile investment and non-drug treatment.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Rash or skin problems

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms at night: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: Weekly
Advice & Tips: I usually get this treatment done at the chiropractor every 3-4 weeks, plus I have my own unit at home and use it a lot. My home unit was well worth the cost of being able to do this treatment yourself and when you need it. I bought my unit from Dr. Ho's website ($175 approx.) and it has lasted about 5 years, but I need a new one and see that he is no longer selling these units. If anyone has advice on a good, not too expensive unit, please email me.
Cost: < $25 monthly
