Hello everyone. Just wanted to create a post to introduce myself an tell you a little about myself. Im a 29-year-old male who has been in chronic pain for the past 2 years. I had weird aches and pains before, especially when working out, but nothing like this. It started after a rough night in Vegas and a panic attack that turned out be heartburn. From there I constantly worried about heart (everything came back fine), acid reflux (my dad had esphogaus cancer, but beat it because he's a rock star!) then lymphoma, chrons, fibro, etc. I kept going to doctors only to hear everything came back normal. The crazy thing was, I definitely had pain and symptoms! I never viewed myself as an anxious person, but i must admit that is all i have been thinking about the past few years. I wake up expecting for the pain, constantly think about the pain, and google up a storm. When one thing gets ruled out, the pain seems to go away for awhile and something new crops up. I now know that this is a classic TMS symptom. For instance, when i was worried about my heart, my chest was always tight. Then when i thought i had lymphoma, my armpits hurt constatly. My stomach hurt to to the touch with chrons. Now with this whole fibro thing, my fingers ache and my forearms feel like they are on fire. My mom had something similar a few years ago when my dad got sick, but got better when she had everything ruled out and my dad got better. This is my inspiration and now I'm hoping a program like this is the ticket I need to turn this around. I am in the process of accepting that I have TMS, although I have not seen a doctor to confirm this so any thoughts would help! My biggest hurdle to start is, how will i ever learn to constantly forget about the pain. Will i have this pain forever? If i do get better, will it come back and i will just end up in the pain cycle again? Will i be able to change my personality, emotions enough for this to work? I take solace in the fact that this is day 1 and i have time to manuever between these land mines. The idea of living with chornic pain is admitedally a daunting one. I have a wonderful family and girlfriend and want to experience the rest of my life to fullest, without the pain! Thanks for hearing me out! All the best!
