Hi @all, I am new at the forums and hoping someone might give me some hint on my story. In 2010, I had a very stressful time (which I did not really accept at that time) and was told at work by my bossto do also other subprojects, which stole my time from my main project. At that time I got ill with a hard sinus infection and headaches. The doctors attributed the headaches to the sinus infection but even after surgery they remained. In parallel I had severe neck stiffness and pain which I attributed to the constant illness (feeling dizzy like having a chronic cold. and so on). Later on I found out that I am also clenching my teeth and was diagnosed with CMD / bruxism, but having a guard splint didn't help much. E.g. trigger point massages relief the muscle tightness a bit and by that the neck and head pain gets less but I can't get to overcome it. So at the end, I stumbled accross "Healing Back Pain" and "The Mindbody Prescription" from Dr. Sarno and I see my personality clearly in his descriptions (goodist, perfectionist, goal-oriented). Since I was healed from sinusitis and still have the neck and head pain (which I think is due to hardened muscles) and do grind with my teeth at night, I think I might have TMS but I am not 100 percent sure, since the dentist says that muscle tightness is from teeth grinding. But I am not sure if that is really the case. The real reason for teeth grinding was not discussed. I think it might be due to my personalty, since I want to make everything perfect. By the way: Even in my youth I had similar symptoms. Got headache around noon (I think due to a tight neck) but they went away by 3 hours of sleep and sometimes with pain relievers. That happened every few months or so, but was only for one afternoon. Now its steady ... To make this post not to long, I only listed the main facts. In reality I could describe all events and my process in very detail which would take hours .... Since there is no TMS therapist in my country, I hope I can get some hints here in the forums and eventually get rid of my pain! Thanks in advance very much!!!
