Treatment Protocol spinal cord stimulator for nerve pain?

I would like to connect with fellow ME/CFS/FM patients who have tried (or rejected) spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for neuropathic pain. I have recently been offered a trial by a pain specialist who is clearly in the dark about my underlying condition, and apparently not interested in learning anything about it. My situation is pretty grave these days—I am homebound, even bedbound on many days, with acute nerve pain as just one of many very debilitating symptoms. Naturally I am hugely skeptical about this doctor and anything he proposes, but I don't want to throw out the baby with the bath water. So I haven't been able to find any info about the use of SCS on people like me. If anyone has experience or insights to share, I'd be much obliged!
