    Is there anyone out there who has had nerve pain and had it go away using the TMS method or any method for that matter? I know there are a lot of people suffering but I would love to hear a nerve pain success story. Thanks!

    Yes, Tgirl. I had 3 months of pudenal nerve pain, pelvic nerve pain, and also low back pain, which made it hard to sit at my desk and work. Or, sit anywhere for that matter.
    Of course, googling the type of pain scared the life out of me, with the horror stories of people only getting worse. The more I read things, the more symptoms I got myself. Honestly!

    I will confirm this for you. I decided to accept 100 percent that my pain was psychological.
    I would feel the pain but say things to myself like, "I know you're in pain and I'm going to take care of you emotionally. I hear you."
    I know that sounds silly, but women tend to not listen to their own emotional needs. So, I would write down anything that came to me, whether it was painful emotions from my childhood or an aggravation in my day. I also started to move around and go for walks and meet out with friends. I resumed my life. I let myself be distracted.

    My pain faded away. I'm fine. You will be fine, too. First, accept that it is 100 percent psychological. This is the most important factor.
    Stop looking for physical cures. Don't ask other people about similar pain. Don't google or look for specialists, etc.
    And, start to let yourself know that you will put your emotional needs first, no matter what they are.
    At first the emotions may feel extreme or like opening a can of worms, but then it all balances out.
    I don't know any women that don't have a certain amount of buried anger and hurt. If you made it to adulthood, chances are good that you have some.

    You can heal. But first accept that the cure is psychological.

    I'm cheering for you.

    Thank you so much Marcia. Your post means so much because I tend to revert to thinking I have some nasty physical problem and then I feel really down and generally awful. I have to remember that doctors have found nothing wrong with me and believe me they have checked. Thanks again.
