Hello Folks. As promised, here is my feedback on my 12 weeks on using the device. You may recall that after 4 weeks I reported headaches, nausea and a major spike in my T and Hyperacusis. They suggested that I try to increase the usage up to the suggested 60 mins a day. I had been doing 30 mins. 60 mins a day sent my T through the roof. My Hyperacusis became unbearable and I could not eat for wanting to vomit. I had a break from the device.
The clinic were very good and gave me an immediate appointment. They reprogramed the device. It now plays a series of beeps and they suggest that I go start at 15 mins a day. I did this for a week but my T and H have not settled. The nausea remains. They suggest that I take a break. In the meantime, this has expose my vulnerability and really knocked me back. I am now having to regroup emotionally and fight the good fight against raging T hoping that it goes back to pre Neuromod levels. Feeling a bit battle weary at this time. (We have all been there)
The clinic says that my reaction is very unusual. I suppose tampering with the wiring of the brain carries risks.
Nausea is linked with T but I have a strong belief that it is the Neuromod that has set this off. My head a times feels like it is being squeezed in a vice. I never had this before. All in all, my belief in this is beginning to slip.
Ruudboy and Scarlett on this forum are trying this device and I would like to hear from "real" people with a positive experience.
It is hard to say "I don't want to put people off", Reading my reports will probably do this. However, there must be people out there who have benefited from this treatment. Were they mild sufferers? Would they have got better anyway? Was it the placebo effect?.
