Hello Everyone, I started getting terrible pain from typing a few months ago. At first, wearing wrist splints helped tremendously, as did some ergonomic changes to my office. But now the pain is still persisting, with no cure or remedy in sight, other than the often-futile stretching, injections, and surgery. Although I am fortunate that it is not totally debilitating, I hope that I can go back to my previous self - working as much as I want without fear of pain. After finding this forum last week, I am slowly coming to the realization that I may have TMS. The first indicator is that my pain has persisted, despite several months of me trying conventional approaches. The second is realizing that the original onset of the pain was not isolated. In the same few weeks I also had an episode of almost fainting and a >24hr period of vertigo. The last piece of evidence I have is that I realized that I am under a lot of stress. I can handle my stress very well, and have been very successful in my professional life. Still, I can see how a lot of that stress can be bad for me. I can see that I am a very closed-off person, and there must be many repressed emotions which I do not allow myself to feel. I do have doubts and worries. I worry that I won't be able to let my emotions out. I worry that I am too "rational" of a person. I worry that even if the pain goes away, it will only be temporary.
