As the topic says, I've had TMS That started in my lower back and migrated up into my shoulders and arms, giving me carpal tunnel like symptoms. I want to treat it like I treated my back, and I am still going through the "anger" exercises - but I am really struggling with this in particular because the bulk of issues happen in the middle of the night while I a, sleeping. I wake up with at least one, sometimes two dead hands where they are completely asleep and don't work until I pump them up a bit. It only happens when my arms are under me or over my head while I sleep, but u fortunately that is the way My body always ends up no matter how hard I try. It seems to be getting worse, and I can't use my normal tools I use when I am awake. Whle I believe that the root cause is TMS, I feel that the TMS tension exists in my shoulders, and that the TMS is real there... However, I believe that the pain and numbness is something That is not caused by TMS directly but related to TMS in the shoulders... I fear nerve damage and other long term issues from this... And I am in a catch 22 because I can't address TMS In arms in the middle of the night... It's already happening by the time I a, conscious and aware of it. I had touched on this in another thread... And someone said to write Down Dreams.... But I really don't have any. Anyone else dealt with this?
