Hi all, I have a question about pain and how your pain level is when focusing on other things than the pain itself. Prior to this, I was definitely familiar with psychosomatic pain. I'd have a few brushes with it before, but nothing at the level that I've dealt with these past few months. I had been under the impression that psychosomatic pain would go away as soon as you quit thinking about it. Has that been the case for folks here? If you're distracted and not focused on the pain, does it go away quite rapidly? Or is there more slow to adjust and it can pop up while you are focused on something else? I've had a bit of both: my best days have been when I've intensely focused on work or school, or was occupied in social situations. However, I have had the pain pop up when I was focused on something else, especially on days when my pain was overall a bit worse.
