Day 13. Can Increased awareness of emotional stress make pain worse?

    As I become aware of my emotional stress, I am noticing that there is a worsening of symptoms. I have a stressful job where I literally sit with people all day who are in emotional pain. I have done this for many years, but I did not recognize until recently the emotional toll it takes on me. Yesterday I had a full day which I thought went quite well. I paced myself and even took time to meditate in the middle of the day. But by the end of my day my whole body ached, and my neck felt as if it were in a vice. I was unable to turn my head. This pain came out of nowhere so I am sure it was TMS.

    Is this common? Have other people had experience with this and if so, what has been helpful?
