Hi All, I am not a newcomer to TMS healing. Indeed, I have been trying to recover from chronic, debilitating neuropathic pain in my head, jaw, neck, shoulders and back using this method for over two years. I have seen Georgie Oldfield here in the UK, and was diagnosed with TMS a year ago, and have read all Dr Sarno's books and SteveO's book. I have passed some of what I have learned on to friends - some of whom have listened and healed within weeks, so I have witnessed firsthand people healing using this information. But I haven't as yet healed myself. I know that one of my stumbling blocks is that I'm still taking large doses of Neurontin, but I have just recently come across another problem, which I can't seem to get out of my head. My pain has never moved around. So many times I have read that one of the characteristics of TMS is that it moves around the body, but mine has been constantly in the same place for the last five years. It has spread a little to encompass other parts, but I never get a reprieve in my head and jaw. This is affecting my belief of the TMS diagnosis. Can this happen with TMS? Are there others who have healed without this moving around of the pain? I have just read Howard Schubiner's blog about neuroplasticity, and I would say that his explanation of learned pathways of pain in the brain is exactly my problem. Just waking up in the morning is a trigger. In fact all of my conscious living is a trigger. How do I begin to unlearn when I have no respite at all? I have no starting point. I have had some fading of the pain, and the good news is, I'm beginning to care less about it, and get on with life. I know I still have a mountain to climb weaning myself of my drugs, and maybe when I am free of them my brain will start to function more normally, and I may be able to see more of an improvement. Guess, I'm just a little frustrated that my healing is not moving along as quickly as I'd like.
