So i'm curious if anyone with TMS (especially pelvic pain) that feels better when moving around, doing busy work like house chores, outdoor chores, etc. Then when you go to sit down and chill, the pain rushes back? This phenomenon is the reason i suspected something "brain" related was causing my pain. Clearly if i had a physical problem, it wouldnt follow this pattern. It's not necessarily a sitting vs not-sitting thing either. Many people with pudendal neuralgia know that sitting down can bring on symptoms, but for me, even laying down hurts a lot. however, if i'm mentally in the zone, doing something active, basically rushing around physically and mentally engaged, i dont have pain. This is good and all, but i want to be able to rest! something about just chilling on the couch or in bed, messing around on my phone, brings the pain on, even if it was absent minutes before. i have heard that when you're not distracted, you start to think obsessive thoughts and that brings on pain. Maybe so, but like i said, i cant always be running round like a maniac just to keep the pain at bay. Even being busy at my desk job is painful (not quite distracting enough). Any advice? I talked to another PN sufferer who said the same thing happens to her, so i'd like to share my answer.
