My my gave it to me to help with my knee pain and it seems to have helped quiet a bit already.
PAIN®GONE transmits electrical impulses that activate the nerve pathway. The nerve pathway sends a "call for help" message to the brain. The brain and the spinal cord speed natural endorphins (the body's own natural painkillers) to stop the pain. The pain is relieved or disappears.

Take a look for yourslef at www.paingone.com

I think it would help you to harm with out actually causeing dammage. it will realese the same chemicals in your brain that cuting or whatever you do does.

Try it out, it could help you quit in an effective way.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    That is really interesting. Is it something you know of being used to stop self-harm or just something that could be useful?

    It depends. If they self-harm for the pain then yes, it sounds like a good thing, and could probably help a lot. If they do it for the sight of blood like me, then no blood = no relief.

    Its something that i think would help if you do it for the pain. Its not designed to help with self harm but i think it could.

    It looks interesting.

    It wouldn't have helped me personally as I needed to see the blood for the release, but it could help people for who that isn't the case.

    Hospitals are using it at the moment for treating people with depression. It is supposed to be really good. They put the patient under anethestic so they don't actually feel a thing but apparently it is really good and makes you feel better. They send electrical pulses to the brain and it has been proven to work.
    Are you talking about ECT? because its not the same thing.
