Hello again....I hope you don't mind me firing off so many questions being the new kid on the block here. But here goes with a few more questions. One issue I've had has been a long time shin splint. I eventually ended up with a achilles tendon the size of a walnut 3 years ago. The pain was ...horrible. It is much better but will still swell occasionally. Now, my OTHER tendon is trying to do the same thing. I am seeing this totally as TMS. (As none of the many specialists I saw were able to pinpoint the cause.) I don't want to seek any more medical treatment but don't want to be foolish either. Can TMS account for such an obvious swelling? Along that same lines...I am a keloid former. (Keloids are scars that don't quit growing.) When I was in a car accident, I required a chest tube. The wound from that healed just fine. But when my medical drama began...during pregnancy with my first child, many years after the accident,...the damn thing started growing. Doctors (and I saw a ton of them for this and have EVERY treatment possible) tell me there's not much that can be done with keloids so I've been watching this thing eat up healthy skin (it's over 8 inches long!) for the past 20 years. And when it grows it hurts like the devil. And now I'm starting on another nasty scar from a minor skin infection. I decided I was going to quit self treating (I was a nurse btw, so I have medical knowledge) and tell my brain to knock off this scarring business. It's not like my tending to it was helping anyway. I know I've read plenty that of skin conditions (of which I have some) are rooted in TMS....might this keloid growth also be related to TMS also? Thanks in advance for any help. I really appreciate wisdom here!
