Hello all, I'm new to this forum and I'm still trying to completely accept TMS as a proper diagnosis, so bear with me. Over the past few years, I have tried to use exercise as a way to deter emotional trauma. For example, if I was having relationship trouble, I would use exercise as a means to both blow off steam and as a way to make myself more desirable. The first time I used this strategy, I developed "plantar fasciitis"...except it never went away. Fast forward a year or so and I got back into swimming and developed "swimmers shoulder"....and it never went away. Ever since I started exercising, no matter how slow I would take it, my joints would eventually start bothering me. A few months ago, I started running ONCE A WEEK and developed hip pain that would start at the beginning of the run, and last for a few days after. Each week it got worse and worse, but x rays show no sign of injury or impingement. Last week I started Insanity to whip myself back into shape and the first day was great. The second day my knees started hurting and throughout the week they have gotten worse and worse, but again, x-ray shows no issues. The pain usually only lasts for the first few minutes of the workout and then fades away, only to return slightly the next day. However, because of fear of my body degrading, even without evidence of it doing so (I've been tested for pretty much everything you can name), I am constantly thinking about my pain and worrying about how much worse it will get. I guess my question is, does this sound like TMS to you guys and how can I calm myself down and work through it? I want to be able to actually stick to an exercise regimen for once, but every time I try something new, I give up a few weeks in because the pain gets worse and worse.
