I am on Day 6 and just watched a really informative video (that I'll probably go back to) by Dr. Schubiner on MBS. But I'm a skeptic. As I'm watching, I'm already doubting. 95% of brain activity is unconscious, he says. 95%? Wow, that's a lot, I think. Where'd he get that number? I want sources cited! I'm not going to just "believe." I want to believe that what I have is TMS. I've had it before, and chased it away, but it was always in the shape of muscle spasms and pain. What I have now involves tingling, skin sensitivity, and swelling. I know from what I've read that with TMS, the brain wants to pick a pain that you are least likely to identify as TMS. Since I've already identified my back/muscle pain as TMS, it's unlikely to choose that as a pain site. So instead it's chosen to give me this very weird, shifting pain in my foot. I've gotten five different diagnoses for the problem, so it's hard for me not to think of them when I'm feeling pain. For example, one diagnosis I got was Morton's Toe, causing second metatarsal overload syndrome. So when the ball of my foot starts hurting--feels super-sensitive and swollen--I wonder, is this going to continue/get worse? Maybe I should wear my orthotics. Maybe taking them out was a mistake. And then I'm pulled right back into the physical, instead of the psychological.
