• Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Chronic Neuropathic Pain and Itch
Do you suffer from post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN)? Join a study to assess the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on pain and/or itch after shingles. We seek adults with post-herpetic pain or itch for a research study involving transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a type of non-invasive brain stimulation. This study involves multiple visits to the Mass General Hospital during which you will receive TMS at no cost. Free parking at MGH is offered.
