Hello all, Going to keep this as succinct as possible. I am a 22 yr old male who was “diagnosed” with CFS, Fibromyalgia, and pelvic pain at 18. Bedbound for the first 2 years, however thanks to Sarno, Schubiner, Hanscom, and Steve O I am fully mobile now going to the gym 4x a week and hiking occasionally. My “pain” and “fatigue” have subsided 80-90%; but whenever I am in public, or talk to certain people, my solar plexus and stomach tighten severely, as if my subconscious deploys anger at certain instances where it perceived to be under attack — leaving me subconsciously angry (This could also be fear, hard to tell at times) During this, I feel the typical symptoms of unconscious rage (adrenaline, brain fog, wired feeling — like I just downed a sugary drink). My tight solar plexus triggers a symptom domino effect — restricting my breathing, therefore amplifying existing symptoms. Am I over complicating things? (Is this just a typical conditioned response, that this anger is trying to distract/send me a message? Alan G’s thread(s) on conditioned responses have helped me.) Anger as a mechanism to avoid feeling vulnerable and give me a false sense of power is another possibility, maybe a combination of the two. Growing up with high functioning autism, social situations frightened me. should I begin to focus more on these childhood events? Thank you all for this extraordinary information hub and support. As stated before, it hardly feels like I have fibro or prostititus anymore; the feeling I have now is low to medium levels of adrenaline(Hardly any more aching or dull pain). I am continuing live as a healthy person would: optimistically, eating healthy and exercising. I am looking forward to making a full recovery, just thought I would consult with those who have had similar symptoms. Thank you guys!
