Hi, My name is Lovisa and I'm from Sweden (If my english gets weird, it's because of that). I'm happy I've finally found information about TMS and registered on this forum. I've had pain in my feet for about 8 months now (Plantar fasciitis according to my GP and a physiotherapist) , and despite trying all sorts of methods (stretching, massage, pills, acupuncture, expensive orthotics, shock wave therapy...) it has gradually just got worse and worse. For a few weeks ago I started using crutches when I had to walk longer distances. I assumed it would help, since the pain got worse after I'd been standing up or walking (It didn't help...). I just came home from a 5-day intensive programme in MBSR. We spent a lot of time meditating, and I noticed how much my body started to ache when I was meditating in an anxious state. This made me wonder if there could be a link between the pain in my feet and my mental health. After some googling I found information about TMS, and it all made sense to me. I'm a typical "TMS-personality", and most of the health issues that I have or have had are psychosomatic: shoulder pain, cronic cough, eczema, vulvodynia, gastritis, constant throat pain (apparently it was caused by tense shoulders..). I've also had yearly depressions for the last ten years, and right now I've been off my university studies for a year because of burnout syndrome. I'm on the waiting list to see a orthopedist (a long waiting list unfortunately), and before I've been there I'm not a 100% sure that it's not caused by physical damage. However, I find it extremely unlikely. Especially since the pain is moving around, but is always located in the same place in both feet. Also, the pain has decreased radically since I followed the instructions and started to walk normally three days ago. I'm looking forward to the day when I can dance again! Hopefully it will be soon.
