I have been experiencing fine motor difficulties for several months now. I feel completely fine otherwise. In addition to starting occupational therapy shortly, I was wondering would transcranial magnetic stimulation be an option? I saw that it increases the chance of seizures. I am on Ampyra which I understand can cause seizures and I have read that transcranial magnetic stimulation can also cause seizures. Will I increase my risk of seizures if I do both?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has been used to augment plasticity in neural networks and enhance recovery of function in various conditions. It does not cause seizures. Good luck.
