Default TMS discomfort

I just started TMS treatment this week, and I would like to know how those of you who have also had TMS felt about the discomfort of the pulses. I don't quite agree with the idea that it is "painless," because I define the discomfort I feel as pain, even if it relatively lower level, in the grand scheme of things.



I am three sessions into it. Will the level of intensity be increased as time goes on, or is this different for each patient?


I am glad that the length of each session is 18 minutes. But i have read that this length can also vary to be a little shorter or even much longer. Is this something that adjusts along the way, or does it remain the same for the duration of one's sessions and just depend on the patient and the provider?


How was the pain level for others? Length? Overall handling of the sensations?
