Hello everyone, and thanks for creating this community. I've been dealing with a wide variety of pain for about 18 months that started with a torn rotator cuff. Around the time I was diagnosed I also developed pain in the shoulders, neck, upper arms and back that I attributed to "referred pain" from the torn tendon, but it just didn't feel right. I had surgery to repair the rotator cuff and initially the other neck and shoulder pains went away. However, during my recovery and PT it did return and a whole lot of anxiety kicked in. Kept thinking I did something to re-tear the tendon. Then my hips, lower back, and legs started hurting. X-rays and MRIs showed severe hip arthritis (one doc asked if I was ever in a car accident!), cervical spine degeneration, and some disk degeneration in the lumbar spine--all of which made me think I was falling apart. More recently developed burning and tingling all the way down to my feet and forearm/hand pain that resembles carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes. Anxiety, stress, and depression have all increased as part of the package. Numerous injections, gabapentin, meloxicam, and flexiril have done nothing for me. All bloodwork has come back normal, though I am showing hyperreflexia. Waiting to get an EMG in a few weeks. I should also mention that for about 8 years I had chronic migraine, but it hasn't been an issue for several years and the headaches have not come back during this onslaught of symptoms. Oddly, I had been in some of the best physical shape of my life in the couple of years leading up to the rotator cuff injury--dropped about 20 lbs and took my cholesterol level down 40 points, regular hiking, yoga, and meditation made me feel great. I came to the idea of TMS through the Curable app, and I'm finding I fit into nearly ALL of the personality traits associated with TMS! Looking forward to joining the conversation and exploring the resources in this space.
