I feel I've made some progress but often have that little voice pop in my mind briefly to question how pain can't be physical in nature. My pain is feet pain (13 years) but only when I stand on them. I'm thinking it's more of a conditioned response but can't seem to figure out why it started in the first place (no injury). I haven't been able to link a repressed emotion or stressful event to the onset of the pain. We went shopping over the weekend and I did notice less anxiety going into the shopping. My overall pain seemed less during the shopping and my husband commented my attitude seemed better (I wasn't getting short due to the pain). But then I go to the grocery store today and my pain hurt quite a bit more. I was telling myself the same things - 'The walking/standing don't have to be the cause of the pain, rather the IDEA that the walking and standing will cause pain is what is causing pain.' Also been trying to work on outcome independence. That is a REAL HARD one. It's hard not be on cloud nine when you it seems to be working but get a little sad when it seems to not be working. I dont' dwell on it or let it ruin the day but it does pop into my head. I'd be lying if I said I don't still have some doubts as to if TMS is the cause of my pain versus something physical. Again, I'm not actively thinking that way but it will pop into my head from time to time. Especially when the pain seems more just shopping for a few moments.
