Testimonials from other patients who have received Magstim TMS
“They said ‘something’s different about you. Something’s different about you and whatever it is, we like it.’” – Desiree, TMS patient
Over 20 years ago, I was diagnosed with major depression. I’ve tried numerous antidepressants and natural supplements to battle this issue but nothing ever gave me complete relief. I’ve struggled with fantasies of suicide, wishing I would contract a terminal illness to justifiably end my life of misery and using excessive sleeping as a way to escape the dreaded feelings I felt. About 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Then, recently, I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and trigeminal neuralgia. This was in addition to the depression!
I turned to TMS Therapy in desperation when my health seemed to be at its worst. I was severely depressed, my body hurt all over every day and I could barely function well enough each day to appear to be normal. I slept at least 16 hours a day, I stayed home and even stopped working because my brain seemed to be so fatigued that I could barely concentrate on anything. I was taking high doses of antidepressants and other medications, [pain medication] but neither seemed to be very effective.
After two weeks of treatment, I noticed that I wasn’t sleeping as much. In addition, my brain seemed to be waking up and I was able to concentrate more. After three weeks of TMS, I was sleeping less during the day, becoming more involved in my family and their lives again and I noticed the absence of the negative voices in my head. Now, [at the time of writing], I can honestly say that I feel a sense of true contentment. My head feels clearer and my burdens seem lighter. In addition, I’ve been successful at tapering down my antidepressants to less than a fourth my original dose.
TMS Therapy has truly given me new hope! I encourage anyone who suffers with depression that hasn’t
been successfully treated with medication to try this protocol with the goal of relief or even remission from depression.
I look forward to experiencing my new outlook on life!
