    ......Then everything looks like a nail. My awareness of the physical symptoms that I have been trying to find an answer for began in 2005, and the thing that angers me the most was that no doctor or specialist ever mentioned any type of psychological explanation. I saw mandy GPs, specialists, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, etc. and not one mentioned that there could be a psychological element as the root cause.

    This angers me to this day.

    I am so sorry :(.
    It would be so easier, right??!!! Maybe one day it will become more ‘common knowledge ‘.
    At least you know now and judging from some success stories it’s possible to heal after that long. I really hope so I have back pain since 2000 that is getting worse, better a bit, worse all the time.
    I had a few people, usually not the doctors but some osteopath, physio tell me things like ‘ stop stressing’ . Especially one physio who was also pretty rough was basically getting mad at me that I was so tense. Yeah like I did it on purpose! Don’t know if more useful that not talking about it. Just emphasized that I was somehow ‘wrong’ anyways and never said ‘you are probably physically ok except your stress’.

    the reason I believe my stomach stuff is TMS and don’t stress much about it is thanks to one dear doctor. I always had stomah ache but after univers It git really bad and i lost 20kg and could only digest boiled zucchini’s. A summer long of tests that kept stressing me out because what was that mysterious thing?? The hospital abandoned on me saying they just not know. I still could just zuchinnis.
    I drove someone to his doctor and by a huge miracle she accepted to talk to me even if I was not her patient. She described in details my symptoms and assured me I was fine it’s just nerves. I came out f there and ate fries and stuff and was all good. To this day I have flar ups but thy are temporary and I don’t stress about them knowing it’s stress.
    It’s SO powerful when a doctor tells you something. I am praying to find a professional telling me my back is fine. To counter my doctor who’s reaction was ‘omg watch out to not paralyze’ .
    I think if we would add all the anger on this forum towards bad diagnosis the Earth would explode...
