Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone has read anything related Seasonal Affective Disorder with TMS? After dealing for six+ months multiple health issues, including a pain issue in my foot that began to spread to my knee, I read The Great Pain Deception. I saw myself in the book, and realized what was going on, and those issues have since gone away. I'm running again, building mileage without fear, and I keep getting better and better. When/if I feel any twinge of pain, I focus on another body part that feels good, and reflect on what is bothering me. To me if the pain or other various symptoms show up, it appears to be a sign that something is irritating me that I am not expressing. Last year I had serious, disabling torso pain, which the doctors labeled endometriosis, gave me a dismal prognosis and said I'd have to get surgery to remove errant tissue forming in my body. I instead tried acupuncture, which helped, and to which the practitioner said that my liver and spleen were out of balance. I found it in a way unsurprising then what I read in the Great Pain Deception. According to Eastern Medicine the liver gets out of balance and causes blockages in blood flow/qi circulation if the person is repressing emotions - especially anger (of course at the time, I though, "But I'm not angry"... LOL). The spleen gets out of balance if the person is thinking too much, also discussed in the book. I released the emotions through resuming my running again on a serious level and just letting them go as they came out, and the pain went away and has not returned. No surgery. Back to my question, I've had serious problems with Seasonal Affective Disorder especially since my father died in 2012. Reflecting, I think I have had problems with it on and off for the past twenty years. However, after reading the Great Pain Deception, I feel it could be related to TMS. It seems it could be the body's conditioned response to a stimulus and, it does work to distract the person through obsessing about it, having them getting tired/depressed/anxious and causing other issues with other symptoms. It is also worsened by stress, and things such as massage and meditation have been shown to help. I have not found any links but am wondering if others have read anything about it. I was slated to move away due to this problem (causing more internal anger, I realized), and it would be great for me to stay or move on my own accord and not out of fear of another medical condition. Thank you!
