My TMS Experience: Day 6

Today I met with Dr Baer before the treatment.  I asked about rebound headaches.  He agreed they were a concern.  He suggested ibuprofen* before a treatment, and also gatorade for hydration.  I mentioned my feelings on TMS, namely that I hate it.  He said that people don;t see results until two or three weeks.  So basically I have no answers but I felt heard.  Sigh.

Today’s session was led by Bridget.  I once again used my own earplugs.  It was loud and unfun and it hurt.  Also, Bridget pulled my hair a lot putting on the cap, making my theory that product increases the pain more likely.

*Ibuprofen gives me nosebleeds.  This should be fun!

My TMS Experience: Day 5

allergy-cold-disease-flu-41284I hated today’s session.  Today’s technician, Bradley, warned me that it might be worse because I’d had a few days off from the treatment.  It was.  I was able to use my own earplugs: apparently the noise reduction rating of 30 is what they aim for in noise reduction at the clinic.  I also tried a saline nose spray before, and my nose ran whilst my eye was watering.

I asked Bradley about rebound headaches and he said it would be likely.  Fucking awesome.  SO THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?  Maybe it’ll get better.  I hope Dr Baer sees me this week so I can ask him about it.
