Hello all - I'm a sporadic poster on here but I so appreciate that this forum exists. It has truly opened my eyes. My TMS symptom is frequent urination or a near constant urge to urinate. I know that's not a very common one on here, but I know it's TMS. It has gone into "remission" so to speak when my mind has been more preoccupied with something else, or after I first learned about TMS, etc. So I know it's not triggered by anything physical. This past year and a half or so has circumstantially at least been the most stressful of my life. My symptoms went away twice, but just recently I felt a recurrence. It's amazing how quickly I then go into panic mode...not thinking that something is physically wrong with me, but the fear that this is back, it's not going to go away, my life will be so uncomfortable, etc, etc. My question is - is it normal for symptoms to leave and then come back before you beat this thing for good?? I did the SEP and even saw Dr. Schubiner in person. I've tried to work through my anger, but honestly, for me it just seems like my symptom is there because I fear it and obsess on it. When I'm in an "episode" I walk differently, focus my attention on my bladder, think about it when I sit or stand up, etc. Could some TMS be caused simply by mind attention and fear? Don't get me wrong, it was good to work through childhood stuff and all that, and like I said I have a ton of current stressors. Lastly, what do you do when you feel a trigger to not allow yourself to slip back into a full blown episode? THANKS!
