I need some help from experienced TMS conquerors! Have been fighting with extreme muscular problems for 5 years now with various other extreme symptoms...we all seem to know what this is like. I am not getting any further with my TMS fight though...in fact some days it is just ridiculous the way my muscles tense up. The question is "AM I BEING COUNTERPRODUCTIVE IN MY ACTIONS"? Concretely....I consciously use affirmation, positive thinking, think about my emotions and possible causes, try to deep breathe (although with this is not easy)and am 100% sure that I have TMS and it is the cause for all my symptoms. I continually try different sports, mostly causing extreme muscle tension etc on consequent days/weeks....still I battle on though. Due to muscle weakness on the left hand side of my body and the feeling that i upper body is twisted I also do floor exercises...sit ups etc....some exercises not being possible at all. All my muscles seize up (no healthy pain and then sore muscles) it is more like the whole pelvic region seizes up or upper body and neck/head, or both. Am I shooting myself in the foot and doing the wrong thing by doing strengthening exercises?? I have always been sporty and always did these sort of exercises before extreme TMS so my mind says "This will do you good. You need to be balanced and strong". Am I being lead into dead ends in the TMS labyrinth???? How frustrating! Advice please all you wonderful people out there.
