    The actual TMS feels like a tapping on the skull. TMS is essentially painless because the induced current does not pass through the skin, where most of the pain nerve endings are located.

    However, there are some side effects that may cause mild to moderate discomfort. The most common of these side effects is scalp irritation and headaches. These and all observed side effects are acute and should only last temporarily. If symptoms persist, over-the-counter analgesic may be taken or the TMS physician can reduce the strength of the magnetic field pulses being administered to make treatment more comfortable.

    Less than 5 percent of patients treated with TMS Therapy discontinued treatment due to side effects.
