ok, i'm not very serious about this, but has anyone with BFS ever tried abtronic or any of those other electrical muscle stimulation gadgets? the ads were hilarious (the first few times, anyway), but since i don't really trusting any diet aid advertised on TV or have any particular desire to diet either :)... just the same, i always wondered if using an electrical muscle stimulation device would make BFS even worse?

curious...

My college roommate had an "abtronic" that I used a couple of times, but found it to be more painful that beneficial. Ironically enough, it was right before my symptoms began... Doubt there is a connection, though.

painful, eh? it certainly doesn't look very comfortable. bfs is *beep* enough as it is -- i can't imagine choosing to have one's muscles twitch involuntarily.
