Does TMS increase risk of injury

    I am getting closer to full acceptance of my pain being TMS. As I get myself active again my only fear is an increased risk of an actual injury. Are Oxygen deprived muscles more tense/stiff, making me more likely to really pull/strain a muscle while exercising? If I feel like I pull something while exercising is there a good chance that’s just TMS trying to trick me? I’m talking about calisthenics/ Bodyweight workouts not heavy weights. I think this is my biggest fear with resuming exercise. Sometimes I feel like the slightest movements cause my neck or back to feel like it knots up.

    No, there is no increase chance of injury per se, except in the classic Dr. Sarno observation that "injuries also distract" and his observation that folks prone to TMS also may tend to have careless injuries, like tripping.
