To be honest, this week has been hell. I'm experiencing a huge increase in pain, and it's in a different location. Still in my shoulder area, but on the outside instead of the inside. The pain is radiating into my chest area. It's been 4 days with this pain. I called off work yesterday. Today, I barely made it through my shift. I'm scared that this pain will knock me out of work. I still believe it's TMS, but I feel less confident that I have the power to beat it. I find myself wishing that my "normal" pain would come back. At least I can live with that. I feel emotionally drained too. The SEP has stirred up a lot of emotions in me. I'm hoping it's for the best in the long term, but right now I feel all of these thoughts are intensifying my pain. I find myself crying a lot lately, which is not something I do very often. Can someone give me hope that this is just a temporary thing? I feel defeated.
