Hi Jeanette, Mel and Sarah

Can anyone tell me if I can use a TENS machine for severe SPD pain?

I'm in pain all the time now and not really mobile and my gp, midwife, physio and consultant just tell me to take 2 paracetamol 4  times a day.  When I've cracked a couple of times and taken 2 paracetamol it hasn't really reduced the pain anyway.  I have been told to take stronger drugs but am reluctant to take them.

I don't want to take this level of painkillers (I'm 30 weeks now) in case it harms the baby.

Can I use a TENS machine safely???

Thanks.
Imogen.x.x.

Hi Imogen

I wouldnt like to say without asking your midwife first, i know we use them in general surgery for pain but while you are 30 weeks pregnant i just wouldnt like to chance it.

Maybe Jeanette or Sarah know a little more about it.

Sorry i couldnt be of any help
