can medtronic stimulator cause spine pain?
2 doctor answers
Possible: You should contact the doctor that implanted it or your GP and get it checked out. If you have fevers, chills, redness or swelling over the implantation site you should see a doctor right away as this may be an infection.

Possibly: You could have developed an infection around the stimulator which could cause pin. If he electrodes are not functioning well or have come lose that also could cause pain. I would speak to the physician who placed the stimulator
