Hello everyone! First the good news. I have completely conquered my piriformis pain and leg pain. Done! Finished. If it pops up again I am able to get rid of it fast. Theres no more fear. I think the thing that got me over the top with it was realizing that I had a ton of conditioned responses to my pain. One day when I finally understood that it kinda just disappeared. But now the bad news, TMS is on the move. I think more with fear and worry about my digestive system. During this time I said screw it to my digestive enzymes and probiotics and the fear surrounded that has just grown. One of my biggest issues was about 5 years ago when starting a new job, I realized that I started to have digestion issues like acid reflux, burping up my meals hours after I have eaten and of course quick trips to the bathroom in the morning with no consistant forming stools. I had it under control for the last 5 years with probiotics and the digestive enzymes. However, what I know now is that I am constantly in fight or flight because of the perfectionist attitude, inner critic and people pleaser. When in fight or flight that means your digestive system cant fully heal. I also would go on spurts of drinking alcohol and I know that doesnt help my gut. Looking back I have always had forms of the poor shaped stools and nervousness in the morning. Also, I have these thoughts in the back of my mind from a long time when I took a stool test and it showed that I had low counts of lacto and bifido bacteria. I started taking a probiotic and it got a little better but they eventually just wear out and I constantly need stronger ones. One of the reasons I had anxiety and these issues is I would constantly try to fix it and not accept it. I was always looking for the next remedy. I was always paying attention to what I ate and was constantly monitoring what was going on it. I was trying to heal my gut and was hoping that with all these remedies it would be fixed. But then I would go on the internet and read that you cant populate the gut, then I read about mindbody and it says you can heal anything. I am just stuck now. My gut says I need to learn to love myself and focus on this before anything and that one day it will all resolve. I just need guidance because I am in a loop now and dont know the right approach. If I just accept the IBS then I am constantly uncomfortable in the mornings. If I just accept it and love that experience in the morning will it just resolve? I am also focusing on really cutting back on alcohol. I am so TMS'ing right now and I need some help. Sometimes I feel I am on the right track because its starting to move around... Pain, anxiety, fear... Conquered the pain/fear combo... but not have anxiety and other fears that are still left. Its like we have to obsess over something in our life. I cant just be okay with the way I am. Maybe that is the solution to all my problems. If any of you have experienced the same thing and can shed any light on this I will be forever grateful.
