Hey all - I think TMS is trying to sneak back up on me after feeling almost cured for the last few weeks. I came back here last week to post my success story and started to read some of the other posts which kinda set me off again. My TMS trigger is def reading online of someone with a similiar affliction and I start to symptom check and question if maybe I have it. So last week I finished with my therapy appointments with mty therapist saying there was nothing else to work on. We had literally nothing to discuss the last 3 times so I was happy about that. But when I came on here and read about Fibromyalgia and migraines I started to wonder if maybe I had those. I started to seek reassurance again from my wife. I decided I didn't have Fibro but the thought I ahve migraines has stuck around. In reading symptoms I saw the light sensitivity and that triggered my TMS and made me start checking my eyes again. I know I have sinusitis per my Dr. right now along with everyone in my family which can cause head pressure and eye pain. I have some pressure in my temples that seems to be alleviated with sudafed and aleve but it is the light sensitivity that brings up the fear in me for some reason. The thought of missing out on fun activities. My wife has migraines as well as her best friend and when she has them she has to go to a dark room and relax. She calls that 'real light sensitivity'. She says that I am looking for a problem and simply finding it. The fact that I am able to question that I might be having migraines and light sensitivity and symptom check while doing my daily activities tells her it is TMS and my mind. Her theory is that bright light outside makes most peoples eyes hurt so thats why everyone wears sunglasses. The light doesn't stop me from going outside and she claims most normal people don't look straight at the sun or lights to see if they have light sensitivity which leads her to conclude it is all in my mind, especially since I was better for a few weeks. I guess my definition of light sensitivity might just be what my mind wants it to be. My wife is 1000% convinced its my mind making up the symptoms and has asked me to challenge the fear. Can anyone relate? Why do I keep reading about other conditions and finding light sensitivity as a symptom and focusing on it. First it was MS now its migraines.
