A member asked:

Spinal cord stimulator i have myotonic dystrophy type 2. can you tell me if this can be used on a person with md? pros, cons?

Unclear: While your disease process of md may not specifically preclude you from having a spinal cord stimulator placed, the movement disorder you experience may not allow the stimulator to work best in your condition. The lead may not remain in the optimal spot. In addition, with problems like cardiomyopathy, this may not be optimal treatment for you. See a local pain specialist for recommendations.
