Has anyone else had rTMS? (Like modern ECT)

Interested to hear others’ experiences. I’m 3/4 way through 30 sessions.

I’ve been looking and searching on TMS treatment lately. Luckily, I live about an hour away from the Mayo Clinic that offers this.

What’s the Difference between RTMS and TMS?

How’s your progress so far?

Have you noticed any improvement?

Very interested to know. I talked with my doctor 2 days ago about it and she doesn’t know much about 🙂. She said she will search it and let me know in my next appointment.

I hope it’s going well for you and good luck.

It’s been a rollercoaster so far. I’m having better good days but a few dips too. It does feel like improvement overall, and I feel more positive about the future, but I think that means the dips are doing my head in more because the contrast with the good days is stronger, if that makes sense?

I’m lucky to get it - I live in Northamptonshire which I think is the only county in the UK where you can get it on the NHS.

I’ve found the pressure for it to work hard to deal with - when I have a bad day, it makes me feel worse that this is supposed to be a really successful treatment.
