I had 12 rounds of electroconvulsive therapy in Nov '14
Patient :I had 12 rounds of electroconvulsive therapy in Nov '14 and have had paresthesia, phantom smells, and headache problems since. During one of the last sessions I, without thinking, wore a metal barrette that pressed against the back of my neck during the procedure. Could this have interfered with the current and possibly caused some of my current sensation and headache issues?
