Hi all, I'll keep my background story brief. 7 years ago after two traumatic experiences in quick succession, I had a sudden dizzy spell that turned into years of lightheadedness and tension headaches. These were only helped by antidepressants which eventually stopped working as well. I had got to the point where I could just about manage to have a normal life (work, socialising etc.) when I developed another issue - I woke up with pain and numbness in both hands which persisted for months. Over the years I have been tested for EVERYTHING. I have had MRIS, Ct scans, blood work, even lumbar punctures, nerve testing etc. I discovered this website 3 weeks ago and have just about managed to eliminate the hand pain and numbness (yay!) but am still struggling with the lightheadedness and headaches daily. If anything they're worse now, as is my anxiety that comes along with them. I'm feeling overwhelmed because the lightheaded feeling is SO persistent and has gone on so long that I can't see a way out of it. I can't quite believe it is TMS even though my personality is pretty much bang on the classic TMS type and I know that it only started after a very emotional time. I feel like perhaps the hand pain was a gift, because it's shown me that I can get to the bottom of the lightheadedness but I feel like it's too big a problem. I'm also confused because the relaxation response, deep breathing exercises etc. that are recommended here seem to address a physical balance, but I'm not supposed to think physically, only emotionally. I feel so overwhelmed and confused about so many things. I don't know where to start. If the Tms work helped with the handpain why did it make the dizziness worse? To give some context, i have the feeling of lightheadedness, head pressure, tiredness, cant see properly ALL DAY LONG and it's consuming my whole life right now, so I really need to sort it out once and for all. Any help, advice etc. appreciated.
