Sensitivity in my feet related to my current Emotional Sensitivity

    I was reading through some of the posts on the site and I just recalled something that has changed since my lung surgery back in November. I am extremely extremely sensitive now with my emotions. When i see something on TV that is remotely sad like a child being hurt or a parent talking about a sick child I start crying. Even at parts in movies that are sad.

    I find it easy to get teary eyed now, which was not the case for me as a 38 year old male before. I mean I would cry when family and friends died etc... but never at TV.

    I am starting to wonder if maybe I am suffering from depression post surgery. Can depression bring on ball of foot sensitivity I wonder.

    I studied acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine some time ago, and I remember that in that paradigm the lungs are associated with the emotion of grief. So possibly your surgery opened you up to that emotion. Just a thought.......

    I saw charts from holistic sites that the ball of foot is related to the lungs as well.

    My pain has started to switch on me. I feel less of the pain in the ball of my foot and more of a tingle/jolt feeling in my feet when i walk. My toes have also started to feel more sensitive. All things I have read online aboout nerve damage.....I believe my mind is trying to switch up its plan of attack. I had to walk outside today to get the paper and went barefoot on concrete. Absolutely no pain at all.

    I thought to myself, how can things like comfy shoes, socks and carpet cause pain when concrete doesn't. Me thinks my mind doesn't see concrete as a viable scare tactic since I don't every go barefoot on it.

    I was outside around our pool today walking barefoot on the concrete, no pain. Come inside and wow, no pain on the carpet initially. Then all of a sudden the pain started to come back the longer I was walking on the carpet.

    As someone who struggled with severe foot pain for 2years before I tied it to TMS...YES, foot pain can definitely be tied to your emotional state. I was even in a wheelchair for a few months. After banishing the foot pain through the SEP, my husband told me that once I went in the chair, he thought i'd never come out. I'm back to walking and hiking. Life is good.
    Hope you can get some relief, Pingman.

    I had nettle-like pain on the ball of my foot last week, addressed it as a tms symptom (I ignored it and walked normally, determinedly) and it was gone within the hour! I am about a year into my recovery, see success stories.

    It's probably good your crying, signs of your TMS emotional release, the American Indians said don't trust a man that doesn't cry once a day.

    Sometimes I wonder if TMS is my body and minds way of forcing a reset on me. Each time TMS has hit me it has been after a prolonged period of me slipping from the changes that reversed my TMS. I let my faith slip, my diet goes to hell and I gain weight, I get to involved in the cable news to where it upsets me, I let my perfectionist OCD trait linger back in my life. I start to let the thoughts and actions of other get to me.

    Then when winter comes I explode into TMS issues. I am simply not taking care of myself and probably not caring about my loved ones like I should.

    I like the feeling of crying now....It makes me feel human.
