    I had TMS two years ago, both sides, for depression. Before then, I had no problems with concentration, memory focus, or alertness. I noticed that I only began to have problems in these areas after the treatment. My memory, short and long term, is awful, I forget whole events that occured in the past and I lose things constantly (and even when I find it I never actually REMEMBER putting it there). My experience as a student become increasingly difficult as I find it hard to focus (and no I do not have ADHD). I find it very alarming that there are no claimed side-effects of this procedure, as what medical treatment lacks side effects, and the fact that so many people are identifying clear and shared problems they have after treatment.

    I went through about 35 treatments and didn’t experience any side effects (aside from the fact that it didn’t really help). Have you spoken to your doctor?

    I am having a different experience than you. I find my mind is sharper and my word retrieval problems that I developed are much less pronounced.
