I'm just going to bite the bullet here and post. Here are a few questions I have for you:
- If I remember correctly in one of your old posts, you mentioned that you used Tylenol 3 to help you with the pain during the procedure (please correct me if I'm wrong) If so, did you find it to help significantly with the pain? I'm guessing you had tried it first without this but it was too painful?
-The vast majority of doctors will only recommend OTC pain meds because they feel that anything stronger like codeine etc. would sedate the brain and therefore counteract the desired effect of stimulating the brain (at least the Prefrontal Cortex) If it worked for you, even with the Tylenol 3, that would offer some hope. ( I am familiar with the doctor you went to so I would trust his judgment in this regard)
- Can you describe the positive effects you had from TMS? better mood? etc.
- Lastly (and this, I know, may sound strange), was it at all scary for you to feel better/different? Were you able to cope fairly easily with the change?
Thank you so much for your help..I hope I didn't ask too many questions! It is greatly appreciated!
