Hi all, I would love to know if anyone has had TMS and what they experienced? I have bipolar 2 and It absolutely  works for me with lifting depression so highly recommend it, however if I have too much I get bad anxiety, headaches and crazy fatigue for at least 2 weeks if not longer. I’m just wondering if anyone else has had this? Thanks so much

Dear Klester~

First may I ask if you have reported these to your doctor or therapist? I'd suggest that as the first thing to do.


I've not used TMS myself and so cannot comment, what I can do is say Beyond Blue mentions this treatment and some side effects on page 45 of this publication:




Which probably will not be exactly what you are seeking but worth a look.


Other than that use the search function (the spyglass at the of the page) and do a search for:


and another for

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation


You will find a fair number of instances of people talking about their experiences concerning TMS in this Forum


I hope this is of some help and your symptoms clear up quickly. I am please to know it has helped you with the depression.


If you would like to say what you find out I'd be very interested
