I went to the doctors about wrist pain a few years ago. They gave me painkillers, referred me to a physio and gave me various tests. This was when I had an office job. As soon as I got to work and used a mouse and keyboard, my wrist would be in agony. I think the doctors got fed up of seeing me. Eventually they told me that I would have to quit my job, and find another job which didn't involve computers! This was extremely disheartening to say the least. I didn't want to quit my job, as I was good at it (from being a perfectionist and people pleasing everyone!). I got scared about making my wrist worst, so eventually I quit my office job, and went into retail. This meant taking a massive pay cut, and all my knowledge and computer skills was a massive waste. Looking back on it, I wish I knew about TMS pain then, and maybe I could have worked through all my repressed anger and I never would have had to quit a well paying job I was good at. Too be honest my wrist still isn't 100%. It's really difficult to disregard what a doctor says about your health. Yes my wrist got better. But that's probably because I wasn't people pleasing and being a perfectionist so much. Looking back on it, it all makes sense. My wrist still hurts, and I have flexibility issues. I used to have a lot of foot pain, and my wrist was better then. Then classic TMS, my foot got better, and my wrist got worse. I read on here that someone else said "it's like somewhere on my body has to hurt all the time, I can't go through a day without a pain or ache in my body". I'm still a bit confused personality traits. Am I meant to be cured from TMS just be making the connection from personality traits and pain? Or am I meant to change my personality i.e. not please people so much, if they don't please me, and not being so much of a perfectionist unless it's really necessary. Too be honest the latter works for me. Maybe this is for a different post. Sorry for the long post. I am very grateful for this forum.
