Shoulder pain started as twinge after a very average weight workout 7 months ago...right before going "home" for Christmas...where I didn't want to go, a place I now hate going, where I had a blowup with my dad after he made racist remarks, and PS, he is currently LIVING with debilitating shoulder, hip and thumb/joint pain at the young age of 67. My shoulder has gotten much worse, sometimes radiating down arm to wrist. Other shoulder sometimes hurting, as well as other wrist, neck too from being anxious about turning shoulder wrong way and causing shooting pain. My life coach/therapist and also my voice coach both had debilitating back pain, they later determined to be TMS and have been cured. Their stories are miraculous. I have been writing, talking to pain, feel I KNOW why it is here, FEEL willing to let it go, with little relief except it sometimes moves around in my shoulder, which I am told is good, but I am never not in pain, at least a low grade pinching/burning... and when there is a stabbing level 10 shooting pain it is hard to believe it is TMS. It feels like my arm is "broken" in some way, that I am broken, or not doing it right, and I will never have the abundant, joyful life I was on track to have, as it slowly steals my life and energy to fight. I am also recovered from an eating disorder, and it has begun to trigger that old stuff. Basically, my life was really starting to expand, now I don't want to leave the house, because being in pain around people sucks, and managing pain at home is easier. My growing life is shrinking... and after so much trauma I'd lived through, it had taken me so long to really make it grow. So discouraged and desperate...hoping you can help. ANY encouragement, words of wisdom appreciated.
