Hi there!

Got questions? Want answers? Wanna chat? Desperate to unload heaps of mental anguish upon someone who listens pretty well? I’m not a psychiatrist. I went to law school and now I edit things. But hey, everybody needs a friend! Send an email or leave a comment; I will do my best to answer and/or chat in a reasonably timely fashion!

    I used the device for a couple days and then could t walk. My calves were so tight. I’m scared to use it now. Did I just do it too strong?


    • Oh honey! I’m so sorry! I assume you’re talking about the Quell, and that definitely shouldn’t happen. How did you calibrate it? You should juuuuuuust barely feel it. More of a background thing than a normal TENS, where you would turn it up pretty high. Maybe try recalibrating it? You should also reach out to the Quell help team. They’re super nice, and they’ve helped me when I couldn’t figure out what was going on with the device. Please let me know what happens, whatever you decide to do!


  2. I am a 74 year old white male, my maladies include: Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, kidney
    failure, multiple cervical and lower back pain sources . I have been on various pain relievers for years, and have been told that I am opioid tolerant.
    I have several questions, will trying Quell be affected by my existing situations. ? pain from my several sources, is constant, and severe. I have been seen and evaluated
    by 25 specialists in all specialties.whose only suggestion is pain killers, fentynil,hydro
    morphine, etc.q

    I apologize for laying this impossible case on you, not fair.
    I hm in high spirits, upbeat and happy. I have had a wonderful life, and GOD has blessed
    me beyond any reasonable expectations,
    If I can find anything that will help I’ll try it , but can handle either case.
    Thank you, may GOD bless you, Regards, Larry Larkin

    • Hi Larry — I am so, so sorry for your pain, I can’t even imagine that many sources causing so many problems. Quell would work for your cervical and lower back pain, for sure. The others, I have no idea. But I myself have cervical and lumbar issues — the Quell works best on the low-back, and it helps the cervical to a lesser degree. In terms of a pain scale, it gets me from a 9 to about a 6, which makes a huge difference (as you know). I know you can give it a try with their trial period (60 days, I think?), and their customer service team is super helpful. The Quell works on a different system then your medications do, though I am honestly not sure if the pain from the Hodgkins and kidneys would overwhelm it. I’d give it a shot if I were you, though! Please let me know what you decide to do!

    HI Jennifer! I came across your blog while searching for Quell reviews. This led me to your “About” section. While describing your wonderful hubby and great life (aside from chronic pain) I felt like you were describing my own thoughts! I am also 27 years old, just finished a master’s degree program in human resource management, have a solid job, incredible husband, nice house (perfect for filling with babies), and wonderful friends. BUT horrendous chronic pain from a car accident 3 years ago gets in the way of enjoying ALL of that. Even had some nerves burned 2 months ago (no luck in relieving pain). Bought the Quell today while browsing the supplement section at Target (wanted to fill up on all “natural” anti-infammatory and joint strengthening supplements)- trying every route possible. Hoping it helps relieve some of the shoulder, neck, and head pain!! My question to you- has the Quell affected areas in your head or neck? If so, how long after you take off the Quell does pain come back? I’m still trying to figure this whole thing out 🙂 THANK YOU!!

    Hi Jennifer, Love your helpful blog! I have fibro and arthritis with daily pain and wanted to let you know about a new med my Dr. has me on that has really helped. Have you heard of low dose naltrexone? I am on 3mg daily and my daily pain has decreased and I am having fewer flares. You do have to get this from a compounding pharmacy and I don’t think alot of doctors are aware of it but I lucked out with a new dr. I started seeing earlier this year. Just look up ldn for fibromyalgia for more info if interested. I still have some pretty awful days but am having more good days than I usually do which I am so grateful for. Wish you and your followers all the best. It helps to know there are people who understand my daily pain struggles.
