I just discovered the concept of TMS a few days ago, immediately after having what I now know is my second acute TMS attack (see my Day 1 post in the SEP subforum if you're interested in my story). I believe 100% that I have TMS, but I must admit that it's really hard to get moving with the program while I'm in the throes of an acute attack and have much much higher levels of pain than usual. I started the SEP yesterday and have begun journaling and talking my feelings out with my husband. Any other advice for how to deal when you are in an acute attack? When your pain is an 8 out of 10, it's nearly impossible to just "ignore it" or "laugh at it." I just feel like "if I could just get through this attack, I could really start on the road to recovery..."
