Today I tried using the cranio-electrical stimulation function on my David Paradise XL+ for the first time. I got the unit with this particular function because I suffer from ME/chronic fatigue and I had read somewhere that this might help me to feel less mentally foggy. I'd also heard that CES was supposed to be good for general relaxation. So why should I have been so anxious? I only had the current on really low. It was like I was on red alert: any time I felt any kind of sensation my hand would be on the cable ready to yank it and I turned the current down even lower a couple of times. All the literature regarding this procedure tells you how relaxing it's supposed to be, so why should I be the one having a totally contrary reaction? Has this been documented anywhere, or could it be I'm just extra specially on edge because of the novelty, and I'm naturally a very nervous person? I wonder if I keep trying this I'll eventually respond to the relaxing stimulus.

It might be worth looking into Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback for your symptoms.
