    A few weeks ago I caught my foot kickboxing, I continued to train on it before stopping due to the pain. After ruling out anything broken I gave it six weeks to rest. It calmed down but since I've started training again the ache and pains have started. I believe it to be extensor tendinopathy. Which direction shall I take now? As this is my 4th TMS related injury. I have since moved to Thailand and returned, I have had a lot of new stresses in my life around that, with women and work etc. Plus I was training for a fight which I was nervous about. I want to see somebody local who is part of the SIRPA program but she isn't free until late this year. I feel like I'm back to square one again, my RSI seems worse from typing at my new job as well, where do I go from here?

    Hi, and welcome @hamstermad101
    My first suggestion is that you think of your foot as simply sore. You are not a Dr. (I assume?) and can not diagnose yourself with medical names or terms. Dr. Google adds to your stress, so I also suggest you refrain. Since you are no stranger to RSI and you are thinking about TMS, you are in a good place!
    If you are really doubtful, get checked out by your Dr. rule out anything structural.
    At this time most TMS specialists list RSI and tendon pain without a structural problem to the tendon as TMS.
    The bottom of this page takes you two two places. Scroll down and you’ll see Forests success story over RSI, and below that, two free TMS programs. Choose one, and follow it start to finish (even if symptoms ease). They help you to recognize seen and unseen stress and learn to more effectively deal with it. Before you do a program, read a book by Dr. Sarno - this is a very important step for self education.

    Be patient and kind to yourself along the way. This can take some time!
    Good luck!

    Hm. "TMS related injury" is a contradiction in terms. I'm not even sure if you ever really understood the concept of the TMS brain mechanism.

    How far did you get with the SEP last fall? Any thoughts about what I wrote to you in response to your Sept 10th thread?

    You're still obsessing about "women" which I suspect is a shallow distraction invented by your TMS brain to keep you stuck.
