Seems Dr. Joseph McCabe is not very happy on being included in a cult list of doctors who worship Ashton. What a shame for the kooks. (Incidentally, I’ve contacted every doctor on Tony Pirog’s benzo wise list. Happy tapering.)

Ashton damaged kooks try transcranial magnetic stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

It’s generally indicated for depression, but there is emerging evidence that it may help with anxiety.

Anyone on here experimented with it for treating post withdrawal anxiety?

Not for treating anxiety, but many years ago i agreed to participate in a clinical research study as a “test subject” where i received transcranial magnetic stimulation. I realize that each stimulation paradigm can dial in whatever “strength” they want, but in my case it felt so powerful and dysphoric i would never do it again. it felt like sticking my finger in a light socket. they were unilaterally magnetically activating the region of my motor cortex that controls lower limb movement. Horrific experience, at last in my case.

I do have anxiety though and treat it through the use if CBT and mindful meditation, both of which have some positive effect.

Burning sensation in my brain?
« on: February 14, 2016, 11:25:47 am »


I’ve been off all anti-depressants and benzos for 2 yrs.Started having pain in my joints and mucles so they put me on opioids. It all spun out of control after that I have had burning sensations throughout my head for 2 yrs. now. I’m not on any meds for 2 yrs. and still having the burning head pain. Can these drugs do that. Has this happened to anyone else out there? I haven’t heard anyone else talk about it. Help please. I’m looking into amino acid iv theropy does this work even after being off the drugs for 2 yrs. already? Thank you for listening to me. I really need your help. Thank you.

oh yeah. every post i have made on this forum is about my brain. when i got home from the detox after the c/t all i said was ‘i really think i blew out my brains’ i am kindling now. it’s 9 months and my brain still feels like an undulating vinyl record that just won’t go down. it’s still feels like there is a flying saucer or a hockey puck in there which cause me to have the sensation’s of descending as if i was ski diving. i fear that the doctor in the detox put some kind of device inside my brain. it’s unbelievable!
i really hope it will heal one day and stop pounding. it beats, pulses, zaps and vibrates.

do you have any of these sensations? if so, it would be welcomed to please let me know so i don’t feel so alone. this is the first post i have seen in regards to just the brain. i’ve been looking for a post about it for 9 months.
