I’m so tired, exhausted from the pain that seems to come from nowhere. That moves whenever I treat it, that gets better only to have crushing setbacks. I’m tired of hearing “you’re results are normal” and “here’s a prescription” (which just makes me feel worse in the long run). I’ve had so many dx over the years, Tension headaches since childhood, anxiety, knee pain, shoulder pain, ibs, thoracic outlet, reynauds, disc herniation, sciatica, migraine, recurrent infections, carpal tunnel, microscopic colitis, food allergies, depression, fatigue, sore throats that go on for years, reflux, seasonal allergies, hypothyroid... the never ending list of “reasons” - I’ve always believed deep down there’s a connection, I’ve been looking for years, and I do believe tms is its name. I feel hopeful hearing stories so similar to mine, and thinking maybe I can finally kick this and have the life i want. But I’m afraid, I don’t know how to rewire my thoughts to not obsess about the symptoms. It’s been center stage in my life for a long time. I’m ready for that to change.
