What code gave you relief? I have had PHN for 15 months and have access to a Wellness Pro device but need the code for this type of pain.
I want to be real honest with you here... I have never, ever heard of anyone having success using this "tens-like" unit for the relief of PHN. I mean, not ever. There are a few drugs that have been tried that work but at best this unit will dull the pain while you are also feeling the almost stinging sensation of this unit, which can be kind of uncomfortable in itself. I do have a tens unit so I have some experience here with that type of therapy. I am also on major pain killers, too. You can try all kinds of placements with this unit on your body around where you are feeling the pain. That is what is going to work, if anything, there isn't a code for PHN... because every body is different in where they are experiencing this horrible pain. If you have access to this unit, I would simply try different things to see if anything works for you. I also note for you, too, and others who might read this... that the unit presently costs some $3,500.00. I also looks like its treatment is first done in a clinical setting so the placement of the pads can be more accurately placed and then you learn how to use it yourself and at home. I am glad you have access to a unit like this. I just haven't read one recent blog since 2010 on this unit. I am going to talk with my PT tomorrow to see if I can add anything here for you. At least you didn't buy it first... you mentioned having access to it.
