Recently discovered TMS. 44 years old and have been fighting anxiety for years. Myriad of symptoms that "move around." Most common are ectopic heartbeats, which will go away and then I'll suffer upper back/neck tightness. About twice a year I'll get migraine auras but no headache. Never really get pain, per se, just very anxious and tense. Been checked out by Dr. and of course, never find anything. Now, I have the inner ear, hum thing, where I'll have an episode where my head feels as though it's seizing up, or very similar to the Psycho-physiological dizziness syndrome I've read about here. Happens when my eyes move to the side or even when I'm on the phone. I'll have a sensation like a buzzing and feedback in my ear that'll set it off. Lasts for only a few seconds, but scary as hell. Like I'm having a seizure, but has happened on and off for years. And of course, ears checked and nothing to report. Guys I'm miserable at times and although I function fine, I'm sick of it. There's ALWAYS something and I've read Dr. Sarno's book a couple of times since downloading it the other day and even though I have always somewhat believed in emotions causing all of my issues, I can't seem to get going. I'm a classic perfectionist and although I had a great childhood and not much trauma into adulthood, my mom parented by guilt. So even now, I essentially live my life knowing the decisions I make will be judged, not necessarily by her, but by whoever. Every day, then, I have cycles of feeling good, then having palpitations, etc., then feeling good again. I sleep fine and have always been very social, but anymore I'm just not as much fun because I worry about something happening. Great wife too, but I feel as though I'm not giving her the "me" she married. I just have very little stress-management skills and am an information-gatherer type but have a hard time putting it into action because I'm someone who wants resolution now. Anyway, it's almost as though I find TMS and when I start to read more about it or try to put it into action, my "symptoms" get more intense. I assume that's a good thing? Just looking for some tips to get started down the road. I will guarantee you I will sleep great tonight (always do), feel fine until a few hours after I'm up, and then the obsessing with the humming head will start. Same thing every day with whatever my "ailment" is at the time. I'll take the tense shoulders over the fear that my "seizure" thing will fire up again. Cannot get off the roller coaster of my complex and conscious thinking. Oh yeah and have had an immense fear of illness and death since I can remember. And of course again, I've never really even been sick. Thanks for reading and any advice is appreciated. You all seem like caring and helpful folks!
