I posted about two days ago regarding sudden back pain that was actually the passing of a kidney stone. A truly lovely experience! That said, even though definitively not TMS/psychosomatic (had x rays done have two and one has passed), it (coincidentally?) initiated an onset of pain(s) that I haven't experienced in 5+ years and i'm a bit disheartened. I am experiencing a very severe case of TMJ; clicking jaw, terrible join pain and problems chewing. I had this about 7 years ago, went through the dentist and jaw specialist nonsense, got the mouth guard, etc...and it ended up just leaving and transitioning into another symptom/TMS iteration. Also having severe knee pain (right under my knew cap that is giving some real problems walking)..and the typical digestive problems that generally accompany most of my bouts with physical pains. Am trying to stay positive here and know this is all TMS but its a lot to handle at once, considering I am still in the midst of dealing with another stone! If anyone has any specific thought processes and/or methods for me to think about this TMJ thing, im all ears. And yes, I have been EXTREMELY stressed as of late...and angry! I have been angry and frustrated with a lot of things, most surrounding the fact that I feel like I should be doing/accomplishing more in my life at this point and feel a bit lost as a result. Thanks in advance for reading.
