    I am wondering if anyone have seen stress illness present itself as burning, itchy, crawly, prickly, stinging, biting, cold, hot, a cold wet feeling, a hot steam feeling, pinching, stabbing, electric zap or shock, nerve pain, tickling, numbness, pins and needles, wire brushed feeling, tingling, carpet burn feeling, or other skin sensations? @Alan Gordon LCSW @FredAmir

    Yes. The brain can generate any physical sensation in any part of the body. Not every sensation is caused by TMS, but every sensation can be caused by TMS.

    Have you seen TMS present this way? Have you seen anyone overcome these symptoms? @Alan Gordon LCSW

    Yes, I’ve seen people who had those symptoms, and I’ve seen people overcome those symptoms as well. An important thing to keep in mind is that one symptom isn’t any more or less difficult to overcome than another symptom. They’re all just different manifestations of the same thing.

    Would you use the pain psychology center for help?

    Is TMS repressed emotions or learned neural pathways or both.

    Thank you.
