I have had some reductions in pain, but they only generally last a few short hours before coming back. I have talked about some horrible things to my therapist. Although she is not specifically trained in TMS she does understand the basic concepts. I have started to wonder why the pain doesn't stay reduced. I now think it could be due to one of the personality traits ....... probably "Perfectionism", but could also be "People Pleaser". Would I likely have a permanent reduction in pain by just talking about the traits I have and why I have them, or do I actually have to change things in my life around those traits???
