    Been trying to return to old activity but it still hurts pretty bad when I go to do anything pain lasts awhile after too. My pain has been its worst in the mornings waking up lately. Tends to ease up later in the morning sometimes goes away in the evenings if
    I'm just relaxing

    What do you mean by old activity? Gym exercise, running, walking, work,...

    Anything repetitive involving my hands. Pc work or gaming mostly

    jwiles. Try not to think that being on the computer or gaming is causing you pain in your hands.
    The more you think that, the longer the pain will be there.
    If you haven't done the Structured Educational Program yet, I urge you to start it.
    It's free in the subforum on this web site and will help you to discover the repressed emotions
    or perfectionist or goodist personality traits that cause TMS pain.

    Keep on playing.
    Behaving normal is what kills TMS.

    My favourite hobbies all involve sitting relaxed on my chair so I developed butt pain.
    When I did my recovery I just did all the fun things I wanted to do even when the pain was extreme.

    I'm going to continue doing stuff. I'm going to try to ease my way into it. If I can do it in moderation I might be able to minimize the overall pain. I met a doctor today that agreed that psychological factors could cause real physical pain. She didn't refer to it as TMS but she did acknowledge it.
