I'm trying so hard to fully accept I have tms but when the pain and numbness in my back get bad I automatically start worrying again that there is something seriously wrong. It's so hard to not think it should be getting better since I accepted it and then I realize I haven't completely done so yet. Is this common? Has anyone else ever had tingling tight back muscles? That is my main symptom and I feel like I am alone with that one. I did receive a diagnosis from a very good doctor who specializes in tms. He told me he has no doubt at all that tms is causing my symptoms. I've been to a few doctors and chiropractors and a spine specialist who all said it was nothing serious so it should be easy to accept its psychological. 12 days into the structured education program I feel like it's getting a little worse and it's hard not to be anxious about it.
