What would a life without tms mean to me? Well it would mean no longer fearing the pain in my hands/arms/elbows/shoulders. How wonderful it would be to get back to my normal life and pick up my old activities without limitation. I watched the 20/20 video today and one thing stuck out more than it all. When the lawyer said his life revolved around his back I thought of me. My whole life for two years has revolved around my pain. That's all I've worried about and it makes me angry that I've wasted this time on one thing.ill admit I'm still a skeptic on the whole tms epidemic but I have nothing to loose at this point I've seen all the doctors and even they've told me I've tried everything. No answers. On the bright side I feel like this is my answer. I'm almost done reading the mind body prescription and I do believe there is a connection between my pain and stress but it's hard to know how much Is in my mind. Most of the pain has been in my left hand but the other day at work my mind did a clever thing and shifted the pain to my right hand which I've had little problem with. But my left went almost painless and I was able to work the register with it fine. Which I haven't been able to do without Pain for along time. I believe it's going to take longer than a few weeks to get over this like some but who knows.
