Hi there --- does everyone here feel that RSI is always purely TMS? And nothing else? When I first started getting RSI in my right hand and forearm about a year and a half ago (I've been a very heavy non-ergonomic laptop user for most of my life, and pain seems to be from mousing and scrolling and trackpad, not typing), I went the other route than usual--- I got into TMS first, read Sarno's book, tried not to worry about it too much and follow the principles. This is before trying all the usual conventional advice that most people go through before finding TMS. But, I never really got anywhere with it, and at one point I realized that I was actually maybe using TMS as an excuse not to put the effort in to clean up my ergonomic game. So over the past year I have made a lot of ergonomic upgrades to my workstartion, and stretches, breaks, using my non-dominant hand more etc. Miles ahead of where I was before. And with this, I've managed to keep the RSI manageable -- it flares and subsides, but overall, it always been a pretty mild soreness and hasn't stopped me from doing any hand-intensive hobbies, activities or computer work. It was always still there when using the computer, but never got progressively worse. However, I'm hardly 100% consistent with the ergonomics. When I get tired and want to laptop on the couch sloppily, I have tended now to just use my other non-affected hand for scrolling and clicking on the trackpad. I've never had any pain on that side. As I said, all of this has worked ok so far. Anyway, a few days ago, my RSI flared up in the usual hand, and I've suddenly started feeling the RSI in my other hand and arm now too (first time ever for that). And now I'm really scared about things progressing. Before, I felt like... well if I got pain in my right, I could always compensate with my left until the right calmed down. But now what??? How do I heal when both are affected? Basically I just feel stuck in the middle. I feel like being more ergonomic has helped, and TMS didn't really. My inclination is to go harder with the ergonomics, but I'm curious if everyone here truly believes that's pointless. And I want to believe it's TMS, but I'm not sure if I only want to believe that so that I can be lazy. Thoughts? Thank you.
