This is a fascinating thing. I began neurofeedback training a few years ago. I found a practitioner and it takes a while but the feelings you get are crazy. I would say I feel funny or I feel pain and she made it stop immediately by a few strokes of keys. You watch a video and make it work when your brain waves are where they are supposed tobe. The treatment takes a while 30 or so sessions before you get good at it. It is really fantastic option for drug resistant depression. I also know that I had narcolepsy before and do not have it now. My brain has actually changed. I have recently tried out and purchased a light and sound machine to use at home the cost is about 157 bucks and it looks like a walkman you have earphones and sunglasses with lights in them. it plays a tone and flashes the lights to put your brain into alpha which relaxes you or beta which energizes you. I like alpha. I was literally screaming in pain clenched fists and the machine went on with in 30 minutes my fists came loose and 15 min more I felt great ans was smiling and joking and I went home and cleaned out my closet! It was so unreal. I had to try it about five more times and it works great for me. I bought one and have not gotten it but cannot wait. I will keep you posted if it continues to help. There is also a game for the computer that was developed by Deepok Chopra and others called wild divine. It is a form of neurofeedback. It moniters your oxygen, heart rate and temperature I think . It has a sensor that you put three fingers in and then it stakes you through this cool palace like place wher e you juggle balls with your energy and build fire with breathing. I have also heard the kid machine Wii has interesting Yoga. Sothere are things to do to relax your body and mind and distract you. The brain is sending the pain signals out trust me on that. Pain is in the brain. so send the brain a new message,,,calm and see what happens. All of these are things you can do without drugs or side effects. Neuro also helps with the brain fog. When I need to train my husband says so. I get real stupid and forgetful without it.
Please ask me I am happy to answer and I love to help people. There are lots to try and I have opionions on all of it!Hahah
