Just wondering if tms can have more than one symptom at once in the body. Basically in 2008 I began working at McDonald's and on the first day I had back pain. I could never work more than 3 hours due to my back pain and every Saturday I would work for 3 hours and it would take about 6 hours to recover from the terrible pain. Pretty soon I had an xray of my back which confirmed I had scolisos and kyphosis. I quit my job at mcdonalds in 2009. By 2011 I was an absolute computer nerd and loved being on the computer playing games and programming. I loved it more than anything and I guess you could call it an addiction. I was top in my class in all tests and assignments. I truly was "the best". During a software development class however I learnt about RSI and become scared I would get it. At the same time however I was scared about the HSC (Frightning exam done in new south wales australia at the end of highschool that many students have commited suicide over) and was hoping that something would happen to me so I didn't have to do it. A month later I got RSI and 6 months later at the end of year 11 I couldn't type or write anything... I was truly disabled and had to leave school. I changed my career direction and instead went into childcare. I got my cert 3 in the first half of 2012 and have been working since then... My RSI has improved and I can write and type again but it's still their preventing me from ever enjoying the computer again. Pain from computer use currently comes in about 10 minutes or less in some cases so I don't use the computer for entertainment because what's entertaining about damaging my body? Just for info the pain was originally in my hands, then my arms and then finally now my elows and shoulders. Anyway a week ago I started having pain in my right knee and I was worried because I need my knees for childcare but no so much my hands. So this was terrifying but I told myself it was tms and it went away in a few days. My psychologist says she believes the "RSI" pain is Psychosomatic and that the knee pain was interesting because it fits in with the RSI. She said the pain is an escape from situations that I don't like. For example the RSI an escape from the HSC. Then she told me the knee pain was an escape from childcare. I said I like childcare however and she said "yes... But it's not what you originally wanted to actually do is it?" she told me knee pain would return if I started becoming sick of childcare... Looking back on it I wonder if the back pain "caused" by scolisos is just an escape too... The only reason I dislike childcare now is because of my back pain. I come home everyday and have to lie down for ages to recover from my 8 hour shifts... It takes up my entire day leaving no "me" time. Not that I have any anyway because then I have to look after my little 3 year old sister. What do you guys think?
