Sorry for yet another post, but it's occurred to me tonight as I've continued my readings about TMS that one of the best ways you can test for whether or not you really have TMS is simply by how your symptoms react while reading and acquiring TMS knowledge. For example, if you truly have some kind of structural problem then your pain symptoms will not change at all as you read any TMS material. Structural problems should have consistent and repeatable patterns of pain. However, if you find your pain changing in intensity or shifting then that in itself is a positive indicator of TMS. Why... Because your mind is trying to cope with the uncomfortable notion that TMS could be true and upending everything you previously thought to be true about medicine. Your MIND is grappling to comprehend the implications and causing your body to have a physical reaction!
