Question 8 years ago I went through a very stressful period here I had severe back pain that morphed into TMJ then tinnitus then asthma. Within 6 months of the stress resolving all symptoms were gone. Last year, when a similar stressful situation developed my back pain returned. When my Demtist and Dr. Said I was fine my hands began to itch intensely-over the last 2 months and that itching has morphed into tingling/numbness/burning and weird buzzing sensations in my hands feet legs and face. I'm obsessed with the idea I have MS. My back pain and dry mouth are gone and I see the clear MBS distraction but my mind just cant seem to accept it- why am I so intent in buying into this fear? I've fond journaling and giving it so much thought but can't seem to get to the bottom of it- I'm literally sick with anxiety which I know is exactly where my TMS wants me to be. Your ideas please.
