Electric Stimulator

Electric Stimulator

Has anyone had an electric stimulator put into your spine & does it help? I have spondylosis, osteoarthritis & degenerative disc disease. My doctors want me to get this due to damaged nerve pain. Thank you.

At the the same time have come to need hip replacement. Having these 2 together, it's hard to separate which pain is from which ailment. My muscles are constantly aching, especially my legs.

Does Anyone Have Difficulties Conversing?

Does Anyone Have Difficulties Conversing?

Currently I am finding it very difficult to articulate myself. I know in my head the point I want to make, but cannot seem to get the correct words out.
I tend to use 100 words when 10 would be suffice. This issue has gotten so much worse in the last 12 months.
I see people zoning out when I am speaking and I know it’s my own fault, but it’s having an impact where I am starting to isolate myself.

Yes I start talking lose track, and have to ask what I was talking about.
