Hi all, having made really good progress reducing my carpal tunnel-like symptoms, I'm still suffering with daily lightheadedness/tension headaches/vision problems/tiredness. I've read a lot about how breathing incorrectly can lead to these symptoms and been doing a few breathing exercises. I've also been getting into meditation more which led me to discover more about mindfulness and the book 'the power of now' by eckhart tolle. The confusion I'm experiencing is this - power of now/mindfulness tells you to observe thoughts, 'watch the thinker' and not attach to anything. BUT some of the most compelling posts in this forum tell you to talk to your pain and challenge it for example by telling your brain that you don't need to create pain, I can feel all my emotions etc. I find these two approaches really at odds with each other.. surely by challenging a thought I am attaching to it, and not just observing it without judgement. I KNOW that my symptoms are all 'mind-body' symptoms but there seem to be so many approaches I don't know where to start. What worked for my hand pain was saying to myself repetitively 'TMS is real, my pain is emotional' perhaps 1000 times a day! But that doesn't work for the lightheadedness... Help!
