In brief: CAUTION!
Unless you have been specifically told to do so or shown how to do this, it would not be advisable for you to do anything to a vagus nerve stimulator. If you have questions or concerns, call your doctor or the doctor on call for that doctor and discuss this or see your doctor soon in the clinic.
If emergent, go to the er. Don't do it!
