Hello! I am brand new.... embarking on a journey that I hope will help me better understand all of the pain syndromes I have experienced in my life. I recently had some injections in my facial area..... dermal filler. This set off a reaction in my head that had me anxious and worried and CONVINCED that I did terrible damage to a nerve in my face. I had an MRI, and saw multiple doctors. Everyone (even medical doctors) agrees that I am having a traumatic reaction to the injections. The pain I feel is real -- pain in my head, neck, shoulders and teeth -- especially where I don't even have roots! I have pain at the injection site which is unheard of. I am also having a difficult time swallowing. Worries and fears about sinus issues started this chain of events. At any rate, I do now believe I am suffering from TMS. The pain is now in my throat, and the back of my neck. I am having a tough time swallowing at times and even feel pain behind my eyes. I feel as though touching and massaging one area of my face, neck or scalp moves the pain to a different area of my head. It's just so strange and very annoying! In the past, I have had periods where I have had bladder irritation and also pain in my arms and legs. Both episodes lasted several months. I worried and worried about the pain and stopped participating in life until I eventually realized there really was nothing serious wrong with me. It took a long time for me to feel convinced -- and lots of medical tests as well. So here I am again, with a brand new area of the body on which to focus. I understand how anxious I can be and, on an intellectual level, what is going on. Nevertheless, I can't seem to stop the pain. So that's my story. Oh, and I am in the helping profession where I counsel 30-40 people per week. I have had quite a difficult winter, dealing with family issues. I guess I don't pay a lot of attention to my own feelings as I am usually tending to the way others feel.
