Hello there

I have never heard of a spinal cord stimulator so I looked it up on Google and learned something new today!

I have bulging and crushed discs in my back due to degenerative disc disease and have been warned to avoid any rough rides as it could cause the discs/pieces to shift.

When we went to IOA/US a few years ago I rode stuff I knew I shouldn't. The Revenge of the Mummy ride was by far the roughest for me.

Here is their list of rides with descriptions and warnings, which should help you decide what you can handle.

I am bumping this up for you!

The only person I know who has one won't even go on a plane b/c of fear of interaction with the scanners to go through security (and he has EXTREME pain even on his skin, so would not be able to handle being searched, either), so that's not going to be of assistance to you.

Perhaps your neurologist could do some networking with his fellow practitioners to see if there's a theme park fan in the bunch who would KNOW?
