I just finished treatment 11, and with the exception of one treatment that was painful early on and a tiny bit of anxiety after another treatment all have been good. No after effects, no headache, no site soreness. I wanted to begin this new post because early on I was scared and mainly found scarier reports on this forum. How do I feel after 11 treatments? I feel more energized, I feel hopeful and I am looking forward to what my remaining treatments will reveal. Of course I hope that I will only continue to experience positive outcomes, but I am aware there could be major issues such as those discussed here on this forum that could strike at anytime. I understand that the brain is very complex and powerful and that we have very little knowledge of its workings. So in reality things could go awry at any time but the possibility of achieving improved function is worth the journey of TMS in my opinion. To all who are suffering from TMS treatments I wish you improvement. To those contemplating TMS I say try it. I will continue to report my outcomes to add my experiences to others here on the forum to help in the understanding of TMS therapy process.April 13, 2019 at 3:26 pm #34150
I am happy for you! I suffered depression for at least 50 years and did TMS. My relief was not as quick as yours, but nonetheless, I am “cured”. I also discovered improved memory that I thought was gone due to a head injury a few years ago. Doctors had told me the brain had healed as well as it could and the short term memory was impaired. I was terrified to go off medication after being on the same meds for over 20 years. I discovered that I would miss a day or two and finally looked at my pull box to see that it had been over a week! My sister is suffering depression and I recommended it to her. I found this site later and am afraid to recommend now. I wish you all the best! I had anxiety but no sore site! Keep us up to date on your progress. For those who are not getting the benefits this site is a great help as I see people sharing other remedies such as acupuncture and meditation. It is a relief to know that all these years I was told to “change”, “be happy like everyone else” and I carried such shame for not being happy! That there was a reason – and it was not “just me being a bad person”. Very validating!April 13, 2019 at 4:59 pm #34151
Sunnybrook- here’s to your success! How long ago did you finish your treatments? Did you continue to see improvements in the few months after treatments were over? And finally, are you off the medications now? That is a goal of mine to either reduce or get rid of completely the medications I am on. Thank you for your response.April 14, 2019 at 12:24 am #34152
@sunnybrook did you receive bilateral treatment or only left-sided? I’m on #30 and although increased functioning, I only had increased memory at the start. I’ve had some good days, but those damn suicidal thoughts keep coming back in. It’s a very frustrating process when you want to be back to who you were so desperately! They are doing bi-lateral since I’m so lucky to have suicidal anxiety & depression occur at the same time. I’m on Valium for 5 months, but hate it with a passion. Hope this works. At least crying had stopped this week, but definitely not happy.
