rTMS

rTMS

…or “repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation” is called what I started today. A specific part of the brain is subjected to a magnetic field in order to stimulate brain activity. It is a new therapy that is used to treat depression that does not or barely react to medication.

I knew this treatment is painfree and rarely has any side effects. I was a little bit afraid anyway. But the staff helped me through it, and next time I know what to expect. Each treatment lasts about 15 minutes. The plan is to have a treatment on each working day for the next weeks.

We will see if it helps me to get better.

  1. I don’t know of anyone who’s personally had rTMS but it does seem like a promising option worth trying. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the sessions go well and that it’s effective, too  ♥
