Hello, I'm new here, and new to the concept of TMS. I developed a disabling case of "RSI" over 2 years ago while in a physical job I hated. For the last 2 years I have experienced varies degrees of pain and paresthesia in both my hands, as well as arm and shoulder pain. Paresthesia was mostly tingling or buzzing in the tips of my fingers, but since having a baby and starting breastfeeding a few months ago it progressed to fuzziness when I touched things (kind of like the fuzziness you get if you brush your feet against carpet). I am confident that these problems are TMS, as they always flare during times of stress, and I fit the personality type Dr Sarno described. I have had a neck xray and nerve conduction studies which were normal. However, yesterday my thumb and forefinger went numb, for no apparent reason. I wasn't doing anything in particular, and my thumb is still numb today. I gets worse if I rub the left side of my neck, so I assumed it was related to trigger points (caused by stress), but it won't let up! I have vague pain in the same arm and shoulder as well. It's really bothering me. I guess my question is this: can TMS cause unrelenting numbness? I've never experienced this before. Ironically I had cancelled my appointment to have a neck MRI yesterday and then this happened later that night... Thank you for reading.
