My Experience with Spring TMS for Migraine

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • In my quest to improve my migraine prevention and to stop the migraines I get as soon as possible, I'm trying a new treatment, the Spring TMS device. The Spring TMS device (STMS) has been approved by the FDA for the acute treatment of migraine with aura - treating migraine with aura when it occurs. I...

    Thanks, Teri, for taking the time to report on this. If I could reduce my migraines by that number I'd be ecstatic! But like you, I'm always skeptical. Looking forward to your next report. I do have a question. How comfortable is using the device? I have shoulder injuries, and it looks quite awkward holding it that way. How long does it take (the pulses), and...

I do have a question. How comfortable is using the device? I have shoulder injuries, and it looks quite awkward holding it that way. How long does it take (the pulses), and how heavy is the device? Thanks again, Teri, for all your work. Julie

    HI Teri! Thank you for sharing your interim report on the new STMS device. I am really amazed at the successful intervention (and halt) of 75% of your acute migraines!

    HI Teri! Thank you for sharing your interim report on the new STMS device. I am really amazed at the successful intervention (and halt) of 75% of your acute migraines! I would like to know more about your personal means of knowing your "first signs of migraine" are occurring, since you take it quickly after onset: is it pain, neuralgia, yawning, aura, sensitivity to light/smells/noise, other sensory cues, or something else? Is your "first sign" always the same, or can it be a variety of "signs?" I ask because using it quickly might be key in obtaining stellar results, like yours have been. I hope in the end it WILL also diminish your headache frequency as well!!!! About your taking triptans despite personal history of heart attack, I appreciate your sharing your reasoning behind continuance, including reducing the risk of worsening glaucoma. Thank you for sharing all that you do, and for being rigorous in your evaluation and notes. And also sharing some technical aspects of how you are using the STMS, such as using a pin for privacy. I do think this devise might be in my future. EXCITING!!!! BRAVO! I will await the end of your three month trial (as per Dr. Goadsby's recommendation) to know more about STMS's potential.
