Hi I've just joined this forum after coming across researching therapy for tinnitus, it is the first I have heard about TMS. From what I've read I'm wondering if this could be my problem? I'll keep this post as brief as possible Past history: Anxiety and depression from age 18 until 34 ( now 37) I beat this through lots of hypo analysis and NLP courses, stopped the anti depressants straight after and had no depression and only slight anxiety now and again. (This has made me a believer in the power of the mind over the body) I've had Psoriasis and IBS since my late 20's, both of which have not gone since I beat the anxiety. In fact the last year they have got worse until I restricted my diet, this helped a lot but I still get flare ups. Doctors have diagnosed Hiatas hernia too this year. I have also developed Tinnitus this year which has been consistent apart from a reprieve while I was on holiday, I only noticed it very quietly a couple of mornings out of the 3 weeks. It drives me nuts. I also suffer with back pain that I've £1000 on chiropractors and osteopaths, it seems to affect me in different areas of my back and shoulders. The doctors have diagnosed Minor degenerative discs in my neck but the pain feels like muscular problems and is also lower down. I have sore hands too which are a result of my work (nail tech) these have been bothering me for years bad I've had various surgery and treatments that haven't helped. I also have over active bladder that's getting worse. I feel like a hypochondriac, if it's not my ears I'm moaning about, it's my back, stomach, skin or bladder. I am at my wits end as I thought after all the therapy I've had this issues would disappear. How can I be free of anxiety attacks and depression but not these problems? Am I still harbouring some past negative emotions? I must admit I have had a problem with painkillers too, codeine mostly. I've been prescribed them from the doctors on numerous occasions. I've stopped again but I still pinch a couple at any opportunity. For some reason too, every problem I've had I've always hoped there was a way to fix it with surgery, if I'm honest I think that's because I want to have an excuse to get out of my current responsibilities. Don't know if that's relevant but I want to be as up front as possible. Could this be TMS? Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
