Over time, one common thing I have experienced in the migraine condition is a bad headache that feels like a throbbing pain in one side of the head. I used to face other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to sound or light. It began in my early childhood and disturbs my life and well-being for up to several days.
Some painkillers and anti-migraine pills may seem an effective option in the first place. However, I’d advise people with migraine sufferings not to take excessive medications as it could make it even hard to treat headaches with the passing time. I couldn’t expect to live a normal life with a lot of headaches and severe migraine attacks, becoming a big hurdle at the peak point of my career.
My early days of life have become miserable and hard to live due to chronic and painful migraine attacks. One of my colleagues suggested me to try out a non-invasive therapy with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) device as he has been through the same and almost cured well with this method. Also, I’ve read a study published in Cephalalgia that shows single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation is relatively a new way to prevent migraine attacks. Since it seems safe, easy to use, and noninvasive method, I inclined more towards it and wanted to know more about it to meet my unique needs.
What is TMS Device?
TMS device is said to deliver transcranial magnetic stimulation in an effort to send electrical signals to the brain cells that might be responsible for migraine symptoms. The device is placed behind the head and activates a single pulse with buttons given on the handles. It proves to be effective than medications as it doesn’t cause any serious side effects.
What did I come to know about therapeutic the TMS solution?
I always needed a precise and accurate treatment option to cure my migraine and other neurological disorders as much as possible. The TMS machine with a measurement system designed for unique electromagnetic tracking in a fully secure clinical setting. Moreover, a comfortable treatment chair and types of compatible coils are also present to track the disrupted activity in the targeted brain cells.
TMS uses energy produced by the magnet to positively change the electrical environments of brain cells. There is obviously no complete cure. But when migraines are particularly treated with drugs, they may lead to depression and high blood pressure. I always suggest people combine stress management and calming techniques, and of course, regular physical activity alongside TMS treatment to get better results.
How My TMS Session Went with Mind-Brain Institute?
I was very impressed with the positive feedback I received from many migraine patients. I always wanted to stop my heavy dose of medications and I feel fortunate enough that I finally saw a hope to pave a way for a healthier, happier lifestyle. I came across Mind-Brain Institute reviews as well to gain better insights and understanding of how TMS session with the expert technicians actually goes.
I would prefer a TMS device used by an expert rather than experiencing side effects from medications. Also, after a period of time, I stopped responding to available drugs. So I scheduled a TMS session with professionals at Mind Brain Institute to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks.
Phase 1: In the first stage, the expert did a complete mapping of my brain to identify which section of the head needed stimulation, known as a mapping session. TMS device was used to deliver magnetic pulses until an ideal point is determined. The whole mapping process took around 1.5 hours.
Phase 2: They suggested me 6-week TMS treatment course, designed for Monday to Friday for six weeks. The treatment room was very comfortable and they also allowed me to relax, watch my favorite TV show and listen to music during sessions. After a weekly evaluation and session, the technician also performed a re-mapping procedure to measure progress and improves the treatment effectiveness.
The repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) prove to be my lifesaver for reducing the frequency of headache, depression, abortive medication usage, brain functional impairment, and other migraine symptoms intensity. The results were amazing, safe, and well-tolerated. It has much lower potential side effects than other treatments and drugs available.
Also, I really appreciate the efforts of expert technicians at Mind-Brain Institute. They were professional, proficient, and helped me determine if TMS therapy is right for my needs. Now migraine doesn’t affect my quality of living and happily carry out my normal daily activities.
It did take me many years to find an effective migraine solution and now I am glad that my migraine symptoms have decreased to a great extent. I’d strongly recommend treatment with a TMS device to anyone looking for prevention for depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other problems.
