Hello, I think I have TMS. This is because I have always had problems through my life with headaches and stomach aches at stressfull moments. Now (I am 22 btw) I am suffering from extreme fatigue (I am able to work and study half days). This extreme fatigue started when I was about 2 months into my first internship. When I started the internship I got sick about every once a weak after work. I got headaches or even as bad as vomitting. After 2 months I got pretty sick for 5 days and after that sick period the fatigue stayed. Over this period I got checked out at the traditional doctor, blood tests, psychologist, hormone test and on. I also tried alternative ways like chiropractic, accupuncture, accupressure, stress relief, etc. Nothing seemed to work. Over the time more problems started to rise, foot pain, acute very bad knee pain so I couldn't walk and was gone in a few days, hip pain, pelvic pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, ibm. These shifted around and at the moment I think I just reshifted my neckpain back into footpain, buttock pain and jaw pain. Last week I found online some stuff about dr Sarno and I bought his books. I have already read Healing backpain and now I am reading the divided mind. Also I work on the mind body workbook from David Schechter and trying to write out my emotions but I am not particulary good at that. I am trying to remember stuff from the past and write a feeling by it but I don't feel very much changing. I have also bought The great pain deception and Unlearn your pain to read later to get more understanding in the proces. I think I understand quite how it works and I think I got it but I think it doesn't quite sink into me. I think my problems come from emotions from the past and fear. I don't have things like abussion but I got a quite critical dominant father and a really insecure mother. They divorced when I was 12, I live at my fathers place together with my brother and sister because my mother was physiologically not very stable at the time and my father has a house with land around it and we couldn't after our life out here life in a small house in the city. I think I always felt bad if I didn't fullfill the expectations and I never really felt secure at my parents with a few exceptions. About the fear I think I have some for my father coming frome the past cause now there is nothing to be scared of but I still have it somehow if he gets mad at me or someone else. I also have the fear for my pain. Nowadays I still life at my father, my brother moved out and my sister lives in another city for school. I still attend school but I only have a half year to graduate and I am quite nervous to start with it because the pain sometimes gets worse and my last half year is doing an internship and I really hate it to do it half days and being many days sick. I do stand up a lot more against my father and he accepted it a whole lot more compared to the past but I somehow still got some fear of it. So my question is I am now reading more and more about TMS and trying to write out my emotions. I live in the Netherlands and I don't think a mindbody practioner is around here and I also don't know if I need that. Do I do enough with the studying of TMS and the writing out the problems/emotions? And do you guys agree on the symptoms that it is TMS? Oh yeah and I am also following the pain recovery program from Alan Gordon on this forum (now on day 4).
