My TMS symptoms, like most folks who've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, are both lengthy in duration and multi-facteted. I'm very happy that some of my more distracting pain symptoms have diminished over all but then I can get discouraged because then I realize I have more stuff to deal with. Specifically, I've had psoriasis since I was a young teen and insomnia since having my first baby. I also seem to have developed allergies to nightshades and chocolate....it's very bizarre- my skin will look and feel burned. And then there's the insomnia that I have taken mild medications for (Mainly benadryl) for nearly 20 years. I had a sleep study which showed mild sleep apnea but nothing significant- other than the fact that my sleep was 59% effective. (Sounds like TMS to me!) Okay...not to elaborate too much on the TMS symptoms. My question is this. How do you pace yourself with dealing with these symptoms? I feel like I'm just moving from one battle to the next and I just plain get tired. Will I ever be free of pain, burning skin and insomnia...at the same time? I'm following the SEP and listen to Dr. Sarno's book almost every day. I've tried to ditch the cream and shampoo that keeps my skin bearable and clear but then I just can't stand it anymore. And ditto for the insomnia....I've cut down my dose and then have gone off of it....but then my sleep is in the toilet again. Any advice?
