Hello everyone! I'm new here seeking some advice. I have already read a lot on this forum and find it a wonderful community! I have been having symptoms that I tend to attributing to TMS now for over 20 years I think (I'm 38). My problem is that I have so many different symptoms, all adding up. What I mean is that it goes typically like this: I get a new symptom which is very severe at the beginning. Then I learn living with it or it subsides within some weeks or months, but never disappears completely. Then some months or years later the next symptom occurs. In the long run, none of the symptoms alone could bother me much (unless the pelvic pain, but that keeps coming and going according to my stress level), but altogether they make me suffer and take my happiness away. Here is a list of the symptoms in chronological order of first occurrence. Most of them are still present, but to a lesser extent than at the beginning. - rashes - tinnitus - head, neck and back pain, tensions all over the neck and back, different sounds (cracking, grinding) on turning the head - anxiety, panic attacks, dizziness, tiredness, weakness - symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome - pain in foot, ankle and achilles tendon - pelvic pain, frequent urination, Balanitis - pain in wrist Most of the issues have been treated or at least diagnosed by doctors, but not all. Diagnoses include Psoriasis, Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD, TMJD), chronic fatigue syndrome, prostatitis and scoliotic pelvis. I have consciously accepted TMS as cause for some of the symptoms, but I guess it has not yet settled in my unconscious. For other symptoms I still have doubts. I have learned about TMS in December, read "Healing Back Pain" in January and am now reading "The Mindbody Prescription" and a lot of stuff on the internet, mainly on this wiki. As I live in Germany and there is no TMS therapist anywhere near, I kind of diagnosed myself. My problem now is that I don't know how to start really working on getting better. There is the SEP, Alan's recovery program, Dr. Schubiner's lessons etc., and I'm a little lost here. I'm also lost due to the number of symptoms, i.e. should I start a program addressing only one symptom and hope that the others get better too? And how can I get near to sure that it's TMS that I have without a realistic possibility of seeing a TMS therapist? Another question I keep asking myself: If it's TMS, why would my mind give me all of these different minor symptoms, adding up, instead of giving me one or two major symptoms? This is not the way TMS normally is, according to what I know. I had originally written a much longer text that would take you probably 10 minutes to read, where I described the symptoms in more detail, when they came up and what I have done about them, but I found that a bit too detailed and lengthy (this one is not short either, I know). I could paste it here later if it's of interest or helpful. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your effort!
