I would like the opinion of the community whether or not I have TMS. At this point I am pretty sure, but it having it confirmed by an outside source will help convince me fully which will speed up my recovery. In January this year I started having chronic groin pain which brought on a lot of fear and anxiety. Would I ever get better? Could I have a normal sex life? Do I have a disease? After a lot of testing, nothing was found. In my research, it looked like Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. Once I started looking around at clinics that treated this condition, I started getting a pain in my middle back. I had been to a chiropractor and had fell numbness in this area afterwards. A few weeks later while walking, I started having back pain in that same region. The same scary thoughts bombarded me. Did the chiropractor crush a disc? Trap a nerve? Will I ever get better? Most pain is in low back, will I have a serious condition since it is my thoracic spine? X rays turned out good, no MRI recommended yet. I have a history of issues that are probably mindbody related including frequent urination, severe allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, and depression/anxiety. Looks to me like the mind is continuing to ramp up its message. When I started feeling good about the pelvic pain by seeking treatment, it knew it had to change course to my back. Since I had the numbness when seeing the chiropractor, it had a point of weakness to work with. Please let me know what you think. Edit> I have all the common TMS character traits including: Low self esteem, perfectionist, high expectations of myself, need to be like, guilt complex, hard on myself, overly responsible, people pleaser, worrier, difficulty making decisions, reserved, etc.
