Is TMS More Painful than Chronic Depression?

We all know the nuisance of suffering from depression. It is frustrating as well as painful. After all, the impact of this mental condition is not just limited to the sufferer but their family and friends also feel the same pain of suffering.

That is why; anyone who suffers from frustrating and painful depression condition is always willing to opt for a treatment that would show promising results. But when the sufferer opts for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy, he/she chooses to go with painless treatment.

TMS is a Painless Procedure

TMS is a non-invasive therapy and is painless. However, as you go through the first few sessions, you may feel a slight or a little weird pain. In fact, this is known as one of its side effects and it is the only reported side effect of TMS therapy.

Most people, as they feel slight pain, take it as an indication of something going wrong. But the fact is; this pain is temporary and doesn’t lead to further pain or problems like tissue damage. In other words, when you opt for TMS therapy, you choose to go with the safest procedure.

TMS therapy causes no damage to your body, nerves on the scalp, head or brain. This is not only one of the safest procedures but also the one that shows excellent results in the treatment of chronic depression –   a mental condition that is way more painful and distressing than the TMS therapy itself.

Also, when you take the assistance of a professional psychiatrist, they make sure you don’t even feel the initial pain. This mild pain can be treated with Tylenol. It starts to fade away as you continue with your therapy session.

All in all, TMS is the most effective treatment to cure different psychiatric conditions. While TMS may be mild painful initially, it helps to get rid of far too distressful mental condition that may otherwise aggravate and linger on throughout your life.
