Has anyone tried TMS for pain relief

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all, I watched this amazing TV program on my IPAD this morning, all about pain, and they talked about, using TMS, transcranial magnetic stimulation, for pain relief. I wondered if any one has any experience of it and how useful it might be. I am going to ask my specialist at my next meeting about it. The beauty of it seems to be, it can just target the part of the brain controlling the pain and therefore there are no yucky side effects, like those we get from the delightful drugs, they want to stuff down our throats.

Warm hugs to all and hope you have a wonderful Wednesday (great alliteration).

Meg

      I have a couple of Tens Machines but I never got any real benefits from them sadly.  I think I still have them in my draw at home..   I'd be very interested in 'A home Sauna'  My grandmother used to have one.  It wasn't the coolest looking of things and was quite large. She'd set it up in her lounge and sit in it for what seemed an eternity!  hahaha

      She used to always have an Artisian Cold Water shower first thing in the morning, reckoned it was good for the health...  (bwahhhh .. I never thought so!)...  You have to be conditioned to handle having Artisian Cold anything in my book!!!

      Sad about the tens machines, don't you hate it when you buy stuff and then they don't work for you. I would so like a sauna and a large spa bath. Dreaming is free.

      Please join my dreaming. Your dreams sound horrible, do you have access to a counsellor, who can help you find out what is going on in your subconscious.x

      Hi Meg I dont have a counsellor, I once went to hypnotherapy what came out was to do with my dad, and a boyfriend. I lost my dad when I was 2 half he died aged 42 from aheart attack, I cant remeber anything about him. my mom use to go on at me saing I had let him down. as I had 2 children out of wedlock that if he had been a live he wouldnt of been pleased I wouldnt of been able to have them. just going on at me how much I had let him down. The hypnotherepist brought all this out I just felt so bad thinking I had let him down. where my boyfriend was concerned he died suddenly I felt gulity as the last time we saw each other we rowed, why Im having these nighmares about my dad I dont know their upsetting me and frightening me their that bad. x

      Gosh kaz...  I so hope you can work through those Nightmares...  Just remember that life is precious no matter what.  As long as you love 'yourself and your kids', your dad will love you 10 times now. Back then attitudes were shocking..and folk would put crap on others shoulders.  Just try turning those negatives into positives, practice it everytime you think of those comments your mum made...  And remember they were 'her words, from her own personal space, and not your fathers'...  Life is for the living, and it's best to make that as positive as one can..  and your not the only one to have had a child or more out of wedlock. I had one... and a piece of paper doesn't make my childs life any the less full, valuable or loved as any other born in wedlock. 

      Try not to let your mums 'attitude' get to you...  Bless ya, and big Hugs.

      Morning deb97936 Dont know whats going on with me at the moment with these nightmares hope they soon stop. i didnt want to go to bed last night in fear of having another one. My mum said all that to me but when the same happened to my sister who is alot older than me nothing got said to her. My mother in law didnt want my husband to marry me because I had 2 children out of wedlock she said I would have affairs behind his back? she did everything she could to put him off me. 12 years down the line and no affairs? take care deb gentle hugs x

      Soon agree with deb here Kaz....your life is far too important and valued to let horrid things like that dictate to you how you should live today..as deb said..attitudes were not nice at all back then....my mother in law, whom I really love..said if you marry him you will never have nothing..mm...soooo the opposite,  she thinks very differently today..but she said it because she cared...really hope and pray you will have lovely dreams..and no more bad nightmares like that..love your self...your dad would love the way you are now..be blessed Kaz, have a lovely dream next time you go to sleep., unfortunately the tongue is life and death...you are more than worthy of life abundantly...think of good times when your going to sleep..even try imagining what we all look like....lol....mm...-) xxx

      I had a tenz unit before, and at times it helped, and medical insurance will pay for it. Mine was rented through the insurance and any an all things needed with it were supplied.
