My pain/tension doesn't move around. Could it still be TMS?

    Does the pain need to move around to be considered caused by TMS? Mine stays in the same location.

    Hi FreeB. I have had left adductor/glute/hip tension for over a year in the same location. Just changes prominence from glute to adductor to low back. Also the level of tension is variable to some degree but always there. I had MRIs, blood tests and exam by 3 different doctors who couldn’t find anything physical wrong with me. Just started after an extremely stressful year of events.

    No, many of us with TMS have had pain in one location. Pain that moves around can indicate TMS, but isn't required for a diagnosis.

    Had lower back pain dull ache in right glute static for two years. All medical stuff done nothing to see. It goes from ache to nerve pain depending on how much I do stress I feel.

    Its TMS without doubt and nobody gonna fix bar me. Same for you. No magic pill or PT. Just knowledge that it is and the acceptance of the pain and get back doing what you do. It wants you to stop n feel sorry for yourself to get u out of a situation that you are not happy with. whether your conscious of that or not. And I wasn’t.

    So get back to doing what you do. It’s fkn horrible n you will cry because of the pain and emotions with that but you won’t make things worse and the busier you get the less you feel the pain till you don’t.
