Hi. I'm new and I'm pretty sure I'm a prime candidate for TMS given a family history of trauma/anxiety/ptsd/perfectionism/people-pleasing etc. I've read all of Sarno's books and also The Great Pain Deception. I believe I have TMS because I've been able to heal my back pain from last winter by not being afraid of the pain and teaching/exercising/moving through it as well as noticing when I was angry and triggers around that. I've also noticed moving pain that appears out of nowhere (left arm tension) and goes away. However about 8 months ago (pretty much after back pain subsided) I developed inner thigh pain when I walked (psoas area) as well as deep glute pain, especially on right side. Because I am a dancer and live a very physically active life, I stretch constantly and often roll the area with massage balls to ease the tension. I also stretch out my hips because it seems to help the area. I even adjusted my gas pedal but then I noticed the pain transferring down to the back of my knee where it has stayed for several months. Now I have glute pain, inner thigh pain and awful pain behind the knee. It feels better after a lot of stretching but then just tightens up again, especially when I sit or wake up in the morning. I know with TMS you are not supposed to exercise the area in pain deliberately or even focus on symptoms but it's hard to ignore or take a yoga class and wince when we go into a squatting position. I visited a chiropractor for the inner thigh pain when it started and they just gave me exercises none of which worked. Any thoughts, suggestions would be helpful, especially from dancers or people who are physically active. Thank you!
