Experimental: Ultrahigh Frequency Stimulation
Patients with chronic lower limb pain will be treated with ultrahigh frequency stimulation via lead around DRG.
Device: GiMer Medical MN 1000 External Stimulator
Trial stimulator to generate pulsed ultrahigh frequency (>200KHz) electrical stimulation, delivered via lead around DRG, in treating pain. Similar with current market available Spinal Cord Stimulators but with a higher stimulation frequency (hundred KHz) range.
- Safety of ultrahigh frequency treatment: Adverse event (AE) and serious AE (SAE) incidence rates during the trial [ Time Frame: 5 days ]Adverse event (AE) and serious AE (SAE) incidence rates during the trial
- Change in pain reduction measured by VAS score [ Time Frame: 4 days ]Change in pain reduction as a result of ultrahigh frequency DRG stimulation, as measured by VAS score compare to baseline.
- Incidence of Paresthesia [ Time Frame: 2 days ]If patients feel tingling during stimulation?
- Change in pain medication consumption [ Time Frame: 5 days ]Change in pain medication consumption, including Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and weak opioids, compared to baseline
