Use of TENS machines - not all bad news!
Thought I'd post this as a snippet of useful information: after having my PM fitted 5 weeks ago I should think almost everyone and his cousin have told me you CANNOT use a TENS machine now. But I spoke with my cardiologist yesterday and he said it could be true for some machines but not all and the safest way to know is to get cardiac pacing to check it out. So he sent me there and they had me apply the electrodes and start it up so she could watch it on her machine and what do you know? It came nowhere near affecting the PM! WHOOPEEE! I have problem shoulders and use my TENS a lot so this is great news for me. However, she also said that if I should get any new machine checked also as they can all be different!
