dave: i assure you the procedure is far less of a pain than most all would fear. i spent an evening in the hospital after the procedure. just for observation. i went home by 2pm the next day. i forgot to mention-- a 2 week waiting period is usually needed before "tuning" the frequency needed to counter the abnormal nerve firings.Thanks to all for the info,Monk glad I workEd out for you sounds scary.
Guess I will have to see the Doc
