Tennis elbow

    I’ve had a lot of different kinds of pain conditions. They’ve mostly been nerve pain and they all started from an “accident” of some sort.
    I’ve had nerve pain in my right arm( surgeon cut my nerve), left arm( nerve was injured during blood test), my face( dentist hit a nerve in my cheek). Then a year ago I got scatia just suddenly during yoga class.
    All of these I’ve managed to heal and understand the mind body-reason behind these BUT now I got a tennis elbow. It started after I started journaling to heal my scatia. ( the irony)
    My “problem” is: the doctor ( dunno why I went...) said that there’s inflammation and that because I’ve got some surgical steel in my hand from prefious surgery ( years ago, never bothered me before) that this could be one reason. And after I heard this the pain got worse and started spreading. He also gave me a device to keep on my wrist, but I don’t feel like wearing it. It makes it real and not Tms.
    Anyways, I’ m freaking out a bit, because the pain seems to get worse all the time.
    Any tips, ideas?

    Your doctor just gave you a nocebo by giving your brain an excuse to create symptoms in your elbow. TMS symptoms related to old injuries are very common. Just keep moving forward on working on your TMS and don't focus on where the symptoms are. It's all TMS.

    I’ve gotta add; now the pain is really bad and
    Now the pain moved again so it’s definitely good old tms. Realizing this it’s almost gone totally. It’s funny how easy it is to fall into old thought patterns when the pain surfaces. Now I’m back in the game and even more confident that the inner (mind) molds all of outer( body, conditions and so on).
    Sending everyone love and light!
