Hi all. In 2015 with the knowledge of TMS and this amazing site. I managed to rid of myself of back pain and although not gone entirely, it helped me to relieve other symtoms associated with TMS. Unfortunately around 6 montgs ago i developed sleep problems. I was prescribed sleeping pills which made it worse. As i have had success with hypnotherapy in the past, i consulted a therapist recommended by my brother. This really helped with the sleeping problem but i suddenly developed severe pain, weakness abd stiffness in my hands, arms and knees. I had to go to the GP who immediately referred me to a Rheumatologist. Blood tests have come back normal and x-ray too. I am now waiting on a ct scan. The problem is when i saw the rheumy, my symtoms had died down and there was nothing to see. Then they flared up again. I'm struggling to do day to day things and only working because im on strong pain killers and self employed! My finger nails are now Sore and look suspiciously like psoriasis, which i have on my head already. Im a nail tech so probably know more than the GP about nails. I'm currently waiting on the Rheumy calling me back so i can discuss my problems abd see if i can push them to take me more seriously but in the meantime it occurred to me that my symtoms might be TMS. Could anyone advise me on whether this could be the case? I do have physical symtoms such as slight swelling, redness of some joints and stiffness in the morning especially. I'm so scared as I'm only 39 and my career is my life. I don't want to give it up.
