I was seeing a definite improvement until last night. The pain got worse, which made it even more difficult to sleep. I also felt a high level of anxiety. The only explanation I could come up with, was that my sister-in-law said that she was coming up with my brother, their 18-year-old daughter and their two dogs to stay for three nights. My sister-in-law and niece are needy and demanding. They also argue with each other a lot. She doesn't like it when I surf and mountain bike with my brother. She just wants me to shop and talk with her. I just felt so overwhelmed and started obsessing about it. I kept telling myself to not be afraid of the pain. I tried to do the deep breathing meditation exercises, but I felt tightness in my chest. Finally I got up and did Qi Gong, which helped relax me a little. I kept waking up with the pain radiating down my back and thighs. My left leg also started to pulse. I know relapses happens, and this just validates my TMS diagnosis. I also started to get ankle pain, which I didn't have before. That must be the symptom imperative. Does anyone have any recommendations?
