Here is my first attempt at exploring my own thoughts around TMS, and I am looking forward to the thoughts of those in this community! I am 29 and until a year ago, quite active. I'm a nurse, and to make a long story short, about one year ago I was having the worst migraine of my life. So awful, in fact, I wasn't even sure it was a migraine. I had tingling down my arm, vertigo, and felt as though I was going to faint. (I have since seen two MD's who assured me there was nothing to be concerned about and that it was indeed migraines.) While at work that afternoon, I took a step around a corner and felt a large/jarring pop in my pelvis. My right foot immediately began to tingle. A week later--still with leg pain--a neurologist diagnosed me with sciatica and I began PT. The PT diagnosed me with a sacral torsion and "popped" my sacrum back into alignment. Since that time, I've been to 2 physical therapists, an osteopath, a physiatrist, and a massage therapist. I've had 2 MRI's showing mild degenerative changes at L5 S1 which, per the physiatrist he's "seen worse in 18 year olds" and doesn't think it's a concern. I have been through 6 rounds of prolotherapy, used a heel lift, and undergone an intense core strengthening program. Nothing seems to have helped my "unstable pelvis." I have pain in both legs that feels tingly/burny to me and can most certainly feel when my SI is "out of joint." I have soreness/tenderness in my lower back and glutes. Sitting immediately brings on the pain and I find myself often leaning on counters instead to get through my 12 hour hospital shifts. This pain has become quite consuming for me, and as a medical person I've spent countless (probably counterproductive) hours researching SIJD in attempts to "cure" myself. I came across the TMS screening questionnaire and something struck a chord. While my pain has never left me since this injury, the two most recent flare ups I have had left me unable to work and coincided with my father receiving a cancer diagnosis and my significant other accepting a job out of state. I attributed this more to being too emotionally exhausted to COPE with the pain rather than my brain being the actual CAUSE of my pain. Now I feel a small bit of hope that this life-altering pain may actually be within my control, as I was beginning to feel fairly desperate things would never change. My question is how do you accept a diagnosis like TMS when I still feel so many pops and clicks in my pelvis? Does anyone else have experience with a sacroiliac joint problem that was helped by TMS work? Self corrections do give me relief, they just don't last very long. It seems to convince myself this is truly 100% TMS I am going to need to understand that these pops/clicks can be caused by something other than being "unstable." Looking forward to any advice you guys have for a newcomer like me!
