Hi everyone! So my TMS has been Chronic Fatigue Syndrome-like symptoms -- unrelenting fatigue all day, insomnia, GI problems, dizziness upon standing up, exercise intolerance, poor circulation to my extremities, etc. I've had all the medical tests and all is completely normal, which leads me to TMS. Since discovering the TMS diagnosis, a lot of my symptoms have disappeared -- no more GI problems, insomnia has improved, and fatigue for most of the day has improved. What hasn't improved is the horrible fatigue upon waking up. When I wake up, I feel as if I didn't sleep at all, and haven't slept in three days. It's unrefreshing and horrible. I'm assuming that "waking up" is somehow a trigger, as at this point I kind of expect it, and maybe even dread it. I've been trying to do affirmations about waking up refreshed, but is that just focusing on the symptom even more? Also, when I wake up, should I just jump out of bed and pretend I'm not tired at all? Or should I try to sleep a bit more? I think a tiny part of me really is worried that because of the insomnia, I'm actually not getting enough quality sleep, and so the fatigue is actually real sleep deprivation. I can't be sure. Should I focus on the tired feeling with curiosity and try to embody it and understand it better mindfully? That also seems to lead to focusing on it, which I'm not sure is best. I feel like so much advice is contradictory, and I'm not sure what approach to take. I guess I'm just wondering what the best approach is for beating this branch of the TMS. I've been working on the SEP and journaling and trying to feel my emotions ... but in terms of the trigger aspect and handling the very real symptom, what do you suggest? Thanks everyone!
