    My history with, what must be TMS:

    Age 20: Carpal tunnel syndrome
    Started when: First desk job
    Lasted: 2 years
    Treatment:: Cortisone injections

    Age 21: Intense numbness in forearms
    Started when: Painting a fence
    Lasted: 10 years.
    Treatment: 80% fixed with trigger point injections/Gabapentin

    Ages 26: Ulnar tunnel syndrome
    Started when: Computer usage
    Lasted: Still going, off and on
    Treatment: Under control with acupuncture and sleeping with elbow braces

    Age 31: TMJD
    Started when: ????. Possibly stressful relationship.
    Lasted 3 years
    80% treated with surgery and physiotherapy

    Age 35: Knee/meniscus
    Started when: Walked into a big potted plant (yes, seriously)
    Lasted: 2 years
    Treatment: Surgery, PT...Improved significantly until....

    Age 37: Knee again/hip/lower leg
    Started when: Foam rolling slip-up
    Lasted: Stiiiilllll going
    Treatment: Cortisone injection, PT, chiropractic, acupuncture, exercise, Graston. Not much is helping :-(


    I will say though, I do believe it is possible to get better. That being said - it's really, really difficult to believe that I can make this pain go away just by the power of thinking differenty.

    I may not be seeing any relief now, and no two people have the same stories, but I would like to hear yours even if it's a little different.

    Introduction:
    I've had struggles with mysterious chronic pain issues for 17 years and finally think I've found what it is: TMS. I'm here to learn all I can and ask other users for help and guidance.
