I have an error in my posting on this subject. Plesae note the
correction below.

I suggest you try the following approach. First, rescale your function
so that
                            x/1.2 10^(-4) -> z Then find the solutions
of Sqrt[z] == -0.01 Tan[Sqrt[z]]. But the solutions of this equation
are the same as the solutions of

         *****    Sqrt[z] Cos[Sqrt[z]] == -0.01 Sin[Sqrt[z]] *****

This problem has none of the difficulties encountered in the previous
