TENS MACHINE for twitches?

Has anyone used an Electronic Pulse Massager or a TENS unit for twitches?

I recently got one and tried it on my shoulder and tricep last week and instead of minor twitches in tricep its made them essentially non-stop.

Just wondering if anyone had tried this method.

My hypochondria led me to believe that if its a nerve issue -- maybe if I short circuit the muscle / nerve it would clear the path of anything blocking it causing the twitches to be fired off.

My Dr said the complete opposite - that it would make it worse because im sending more electricity into my body.. lol

Hi Rino,

I asked for it once to treat my pain. But my physician told me that - because I have twitches - it would not be indicated because it makes it worse..So I never tried..

Well - I can tell you 100% that your dr is correct.

This is day 7 of nonstop tricep twitches where I put the tens machine pads....
