    Hi everyone,

    I was feeling minimal pins and needles in my fingertips before but in the last 2 days as the day goes by my fingers and hands become more sensitive and red especially if I wash it with hot water. Is this like neuropathy or vasculitis? I don't know anymore what to think. Thanks.

    Hi, uccello1983. I take it that a doctor has checked you out and has found nothing structurally wrong that is causing your fingers and hands hurt. If so, the pain just has to be psychological. Your pain is coming from some repressed emotion(s). Have you done the Structured Educational Program, free on the subforum of this web site? If not, I urge you to begin. It has excellent steps to take toward TMS healing. I found the best to be journaling, writing briefly about anything present or past that still troubles you. Once you discover those, your subconscious stops sending the pain. Here are Dr. Sarno's 12 steps toward TMS healing...

    1. Herbie’s Extended Version of Dr. Sarno’s 12 DAILY REMINDERS
      1. The pain is due to TMS. This is real pain or anxiety but it is caused by subconscious tensions and triggers, stressors and traits to your reactions and fears, and also when at boiling point your conscious tension can and does cause real pain too.
      2. The main reason for the pain is mild oxygen deprivation. This means that when you get in pain or in anxiety then the blood is restricted from going to a place such as the lower back. The blood being restricted causes oxygen deprivation which causes the pain. Remember, where there is no oxygen then there is pain in the body. Also, the pain stays because of fear and focus to physical organic symptoms and repressions.

    1. TMS is a harmless condition caused by my REPRESSED EMOTIONS, so even though you think you can harm yourself from the years of pain you have felt and how you feel in general -- so far no reports have been heard from TMS healing knowledge causing damage to anyone. TMS knowledge only helps.

    1. The principle emotion is your repressed ANGER. This means under your consciousness lies something that happens automatically to everyone. TMSers have repressions that are stored because of our personality traits,traumas, stressors, fears, strain, etc... When these stored repressions build and build then eventually they cause the brain to send pain into your body to keep you from having an emotional crises. The mind-body thinks it is helping you.

    1. TMS exists to DISTRACT your attentions from the emotions, stressors, tensions and strains of your personality traits because if you can get distraction then you won't have to be in emotional turmoil. When you don't face and feel your emotions and they get repressed because you didn't want to deal with something -- they are just adding up in this beaker, ready to pour over and create real pain and anxiety in your body.

    1. Since my body is perfectly normal, there is nothing to fear. So in reality when I fear the pain or anxiety I just cause myself undo strain and tension adding to the beaker of pain. If I fear then I feed the pain. If I fear It is impossible to recondition. Fear keeps the pain and anxiety alive in the body through focus.

    1. Therefore, physical activity is harmless. If I want to work against the pain, I could, but it is better to lose some of the pain.

    1. I am resuming all normal physical activity. I don't fear moving anymore. I believe in my body's ability to heal now. I can move how I want. I will not fear moving with a bent back anymore. I will also practice going out and acting normal again, not in fear of what pain might do to me.

    1. The pain is unimportant and powerless. Its only power is how it is hidden -- it's illusion; it's fear.

    10. I will keep my attention on the emotional issues. I will think about my emotions and feel my emotions throughout the day. I will not judge, criticize or fear my emotions. I will not run from my emotional issues but face everyone of them. I will feel my emotions fully and cry if I need to. Then I will release the emotion and get my mind and thoughts back to my life and living in the present, in flow.

    1. 11. I am in control of all of this. This is how I recover.

    12. I will be thinking PSYCHOLOGICALLY AT ALL TIMES. This means I will keep my thoughts on psychological issues like happiness, fear and anger -- traits and triggers, conditioning and journaling. The science behind mind- body/TMS healing, etc.... This way I will not feed my thoughts to the body -- that is a trick of TMS. TMS will always try to get me to focus on the body caused by the pain until I break its show and flair. When I get my attention off psychical symptoms and on emotional issues and psychological issues then I will not feed the fear of the physical issues anymore, ` thus making the tms of no effect. This will in return, give you the cure.

    yes I have been checked and see a TMS therapist and saw a TMS physician but overtime I have a symptom, the therapist says if you are concerned check with your doctor. Also, I did 12 days of the SEP but then the therapist asked me to stop and just soothe myself. She and the TMS doctor think I need soothing and comforting right now more than journaling. I think my nervous system is on overload right now.

    Hi, Neda. Go ahead and take your therapist's and doctor's advice and just relax and rest. If that doesn't help in a few weeks, you can go back to the SEProgram. Good luck and believe, one way or another, you are going to be pain-free.
