> Yes, I think for those in trials the idea of a "sham" treatment is a joke, for me the pain was excruciating, especially at first (like having nails pounded in to my head) and there`s no way I wouldn`t have known I was getting the real thing if I`d been in a trial.
Yeah, for this to be a sham treatment, they would have had to modify the machine to somehow inflict a good deal of pain on me and to induce muscle twitching w/o using magnets. The technician also always takes a long time to make sure I'm positioned just right, which I don't think he would bother doing if he thought I was on the sham.
