Hello, everyone. I'm Meadow and I've been dealing with chronic daily headaches for the past six months. I'm pretty certain that it's mindbody syndrome (I prefer that label vs. TMS) but there is still some nagging doubt and my biggest issue is FEAR. Fear that it won't go away and horrible anxiety on days that the symptoms are lower. Actually, I was listening to the Mind Body prescription the other day and one of the stories about a woman with pain that changed to anxiety fit me to a T! How do I know? I fit just about every personality type in the book (perfectionist, stoic, goodism, worrier, etc.) and have had real MBS pain disorders that I've tackled in the past pelvic pain and IBS. But I've had a very very stressful year with some physical health issues (cancer - currently in remission) and a damaged vocal cord from the surgery that was misdiagnosed and led to depression and anxiety. As soon as I got the vocal cord fixed and my voice back and was feeling on the road to real recovery, I started getting chronic daily headaches. I've blamed it on meds, my eyes, my teeth and jaw, etc. and none of the doctors have found anything wrong, so it just dawned on me this week (I'm a slow learner that it sounds like a pretty classic case of mindbody syndrome. As soon as one issue resolved, another cropped up. Go figure. But this one is tough. The headaches don't respond to traditional over the counter meds so I feel the symptoms much of the day...although, they do vary in intensity. My biggest pressing issue is that I want the pain to go away NOW and I'm quite impatient. I'm having a hard time figuring what to say to my symptoms and trying not to be obsessed with this site and the TMS work. Suggestions and headache success stories would be much appreciated. Thanks!
