Hello everybody, My journey has been interesting, to say the least. I had rotator cuff, then anterior deltoid/pec minor tendonitis (TMS), and after that got better, chronic neck pain (TMS). After reading many of the recommended books, doing the TMS workbook, and listening to audio CDS, I started to make quick progress. I met with Dr. Schecter and was finally given the correct diagnosis for all of my pain that appeared to fluctuate between my shoulder and neck, though there was never pain in those regions at the same time (Symptom Imperative). After my consultation and TMS diagnosis, I started exercising more than ever, 100% confident in the TMS diagnosis, as the good doctor assured me there was no structural damage. I started seeing a TMS therapist via Skype, and had very fast progress. Within a few weeks I was totally pain free, and I went a long while without even thinking about TMS. During that time, I was writing in my TMS journal and enjoying a pain-free life! However, I've had some neck pain that has come back for a few weeks now, and it's with me about 50% of the time. I'm still seeing the TMS therapist, so that is helping me not feed into the fear and relapse back to worried thinking. However, it is a nuisance. He tells me that when I truly "don't give a f#ck about the pain", it will finally stop. I adopted this attitude 100% over a month ago. And as a result, no pain! I have finished the TMS workbook a few weeks ago and am wondering if maybe that is why the pain came back? I guess the daily journaling and reflection on TMS is a must, because I have certainly started slacking off on the stuff I did before. Previously I was reading books, journaling, listening to CDS, and seeing my therapist. I probably only spent 15-30 minutes per day on my treatment on average, so it's not like it was a major inconvenience or anything. Already, I feel 50% of my current neck pain is gone simply from writing these words....kind of profound. I now realize that I need to do a little more if I'm to truly beat TMS. I'm not obsessing over it like I used to. Just realizing that my early success is gone, and I simply need to adjust things so I can enjoy the life I was living for awhile. It was grand! If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. And if anyone has questions, I'll answer them to the best of my ability. Thanks.
