Do TENS units help with cramp pain?
#1
I saw these products being marketed and was curious about them. They are small TENS units designed to wear on your lower abdomen where your tubs are and are said to help ease even the most severe cramping pain. I do have a TENS unit already from a back injury I sustained 6 years ago. I never thought to try it for cramps. Is this safe?

Hi RedRose,
I've read a lot about the positive benefits of using TENS for period pain as well. I haven't tried it yet though and would be curious to hear your personal experience!

Oh yes, it is safe. You just don't want to use too high of a setting. I think if you were to use an actual TENS and not one that is marketed for cramps, keep it on a lower setting first and work up until you feel the pain ease off. I have not tried this myself but I have looked into it for cramp management. A friend of mine uses one and she seems to enjoy it.

My sister uses one of these devices for her cramps and loves it. She uses it for all sorts of pains.

You just never want to put the pads above the belly button on the front. This can cause issues with organs being overly stimulated. And it is worth noting that you should never use them on your head or near your heart.

I have heard positive things about them but I have never personally tried one. I might give it a go though. My boyfriend has a TENS he uses for an injury it got in a car accident a few months back.

Thanks for all your replies!

I did a bit more research since asking this question and I think I might give it a try. I am not sure how it will feel though as I have only ever had a TENs unit on me at the doctor and this was on my back. I would imagine it feels a bit different being over the organs vs over bone and muscle.
