    Hi everyone! I told myself that I will check back in every now and then to give my progress and to give everyone hope that you can get through this. I once have first apologize again for not being able to respond to your messages, because it's been pretty busy and from my own personal advice, don't make this TMS forum your day in day out, you want to take your mind away from it as much as possible!

    I recently had foot surgery a week ago, and guess what? My TMS came back the first 3 days! The symptoms included: horrible panic attacks, insomnia, pain, tingling in my feet & legs, back pain, dizziness (the worst), and out of body experience. I was so frustrated and angry at myself. I cried to my fiance, "I thought I beat this! How is this possible?! How did it come back?" But similarly to what I told some members on this amazing forum...I realized it's okay, because this time it's different...This time I knew the root of my anxiety. I knew I beat once, so I followed the same strategies I did before and I was able to step out of that black hole once again.

    Beating TMS, is about realizing that your brain has created a nasty pattern/habits on how to deal with stress. And to beat that, you need rewire that thinking, make up a new pattern, say hey Brain, "I know you're freaking out, and I know you're going to result to acting like this to solve this problem, but try this instead."

    Everyone has the potential to beat this over time. Be confident with yourself and know that time is with you, not against you.

    Take care everyone!

    My pain from the surgery and the anxiety after the surgery was really bad. I couldn't sleep for 2 days and was on Vicodin for a few days. If you're asking about how severe my pain was when I first started getting anxiety, it was the worst pain I ever felt. I was on high dosage of Ibuprofen every day and Xanax to calm myself (hopefully put myself to sleep).
