Hi all, I am really looking for some advice and support right now. I have been on the TMS journey about 3 weeks...I had a few days of very decreased pain and was so encouraged, then began to have even worse symptoms, this is somewhat embarrassing but I have no shame and have read a few other stories of people experiencing the same type of spasms "down there". I was getting these a bit before beginning TMS but now they are SO much worse, I can hardly sit and it is unrelenting at night keeping me from sleeping and I am honestly going a little nuts over it and its driving me crazy! I know this is the worse thing I could do but its so hard to ignore especially when it keeps me up at night, i was sleeping fine before this happened. Its like TMS is saying I know you were ignoring me, now im going to make sure you cant! I have begun using valium suppositories and they help at night but am i reinforcing this to my brain? Another question is does this sound like symptom imperative even though I had this a bit before TMS just on a much MUCH lesser scale? Or perhaps symptom extinction? Is it normal to get so much worse before it gets better? Sorry for all the questions but I could really use some advice and motivation. Thank you!
