Hi everyone. I’m in need of some advice please. Since 2014 I have suffered with sever, chronic pain in my lower abdomen. Started mid abdomen and moved to above left hip after a few months. Spreads across whole pelvis, up left ribs and down both thighs. No causes found by Drs. It progressed to chronic fatigue, sensory impairment and an eventual diagnosis of ibs and fibromyalgia in 2016. I got all Fibro symptoms under control and the pain under some control in Sept 2018 by using the amazing pain programme here on TMS Wiki and just had mild pain every two or three weeks for a couple of days. In the last 9 days, I have regressed and am now in severe pain again every day, but it’s waking me between 2-4am and its impossible to go back to sleep. No sign of the fibro yet. It may be a coincidence but I am also reading The Great Pain Deception and have finished The MindBody Prescription before that. I know I need to distract myself, not focus on the pain and avoid anything that acknowledges the pain (I get some relief from a hot water bottle but am trying not to use that so I don’t reinforce it). The loneliness of severe pain in the early hours is indescribable, and I fear I am forming some kind of loop....pain, fear, loneliness, pain etc exacerbated by increasing exhaustion. Can anyone advise on the best way to manage this night time pain in a way that supports resolving TMS? Thank you.
