    Does anyone think that TMS is the physical product of psychological anxiety and or perceived fear?

    Yes to both. However, I disagree with the idea of perceived fear. The trigger of fear may be perceived, but fear itself is absolutely real. Otherwise, it would not lead to TMS.

    Yes, but the word fear is maybe not precise. The fear you feel when your life is definitely in danger is different and useful. These fears were cooked up by the mind with nonsense thoughts. Deep down somewhere we all know it’s not “real” in the same way the former is.

    TMS pain is a reaction to your reaction to thoughts generally. The symptom imperative is a reveal of the intelligence of this reaction. It produces physical pain to keep your attention and focus there. The pain is part of this whole construct that only exists in the mind. It’s supported by thoughts and sometimes real experiences. It’s like watching a magic trick and concluding the magic is real. The person who helps you through TMS knows all the magicians tricks and tries to show you how it works.
