I know this sounds like a stupid question, but everyone has lots of stress and stuff going on in their lives. How is TMS not more popular? I understand that lots of people may have very mild forms and therefore wouldn’t even know or care that much, but is there something genetic that predisposes some people (us) to manifest TMS more than others? Think of all the professional athletes and celebrities in the world. They are typically very driven, competitive people and I would imagine they deal with extreme stress often. Yet, while they obviously suffer injuries and have pains occasionally, I have never heard of any athlete who had to retire or miss a season or even a single game due to the weird, more uncommon symptoms of TMS (like random wrist or foot pain or unprompted knee pain, etc.). The athlete scenario is just an example, I guess I’m just wondering why most people can deal with immense stress and repressed emotions throughout their lives and never show any physical symptoms, and others such as us can not.
