I just had my first ECT treatment two days ago. I've read lots of literature about it and thought that I was prepared! I had a headache and right sided jaw pain after the treatment when I awoke. I had some muscular aches and pains, but not too bad. I came home to sleep off the anesthesia like they said. When I awoke, I could not barely even move. Every muscle in my body hurt!! And....it still hurts pretty bad now, two days later! I can't take a deep breath, I can't walk without shuffling my feet, and I can't get up from the couch without help! Is this normal??? I'm not sure that they gave me enough muscle relaxer!! If this is going to be how every treatment is....then this sucks!! I was far more worried about headaches or memory loss! I had to cancel my second treatment for this week because I'm having so much trouble getting around! I'm very disappointed because I did not expect this. Now my treatment will be prolonged more because of this! I need some answers and fast before I just quit these treatments all together. Can anyone give me their input about ECT from experience only please??
