Emotions connected to the pain

    Hi everyone!

    I just wanted to say that I am learning a lot with this program.

    Last Saturday evening I was going to my sister's house for dinner and a movie. I woke up Saturday morning with a sharp pain between my left shoulder blade and my neck (a pain I had experienced before). I started to get freaked out however I stopped myself and asked myself why was I having this pain? What was I stressed about?

    And I realized that I was a bit stressed about going over to my sister's... I love her very much however we had a hard time getting along when we were teenagers. It got better with time but I feel she is very harsh and critical of everyone and I was stressed that she would come down on me for who knows why. Within 45 minutes of realizing this, the pain completely went away!

    I am convinced that I have TMS but after going through this, I'm 200% sure!

    I want to know if you had pain during or after your visit with your sister.

    During dinner I was ok. Afterwards while watching the movies I had a bit of a sore neck but the position I had was not the best (seating arrangement not optimal!). When we left I was fine.
