Hi there, Just wanted to introduce myself and get some advice on my TMS situation. Quick background - I'm 29 and I started getting severe eye strain while using computers or reading about 5 or 6 years ago. This was way way worse than tired eyes, and most of the advice to just rest them more seemed useless. Eventually I took a total break from work and from the computer, again this didn't help. The pain and discomfort was quite extreme and caused migraines. Taking a break from work did nothing, and tons of different eye examinations showed up with nothing. At this point I couldn't even read a newspaper without triggering a migraine. Eventually I found someone online who had solved a similar problem using eye exercises - ie daily stretches, pulling the muscles all around to reactivate tight ones. A year or so of this gave gradual improvement and allowed me to work again on a computer. Things kinda plateaued, which is when I heard of John Sarnos booked. I have read and re read the book and am seeing improvement. Currently at best I can do around 3 hours computer work without a problem - still not enough to go back to work but a massive improvement. This week though, unfortunately it has relapsed a little, the discomfort has been quite high and it can be frustrating when I have a few bad days. I sometimes feel a bit in no mans land when its like this - I don't want to return to the physical eye exercises, as the book says that may bring the focus back onto the physical side of things, so i guess im looking for advice on my next step. Anyone else had eye related issues? Any other good books or important material for me to read? I am trying to incorporate more time into thinking about the reasons for TMS, I have had some very stressful years in my early 20s aswell as having a lot of goodist behaviors. I am generally a happy and relaxed guy who deals with stress well, but that could just be the rational concious side of me, I do defiantly have some OCD/control freak tendencies, aswell as not really switching off my mind very well. TMS makes alot of sense, seen as the regular medical tests didn't show anything, the pain has been chronic and severe, the pain has been random and seems to be triggered by things that don't make sense - ie. sometimes worse on a laptop, sometimes reading is fine but computer work bad, i also had similar migraines the past 4 christmases. Also just wondering in my approach to solving this - how should I go about having my healthy computer use habits. I never used to take breaks and had bad posture. Obviously it makes sense to improve these habits and to take breaks, stretch more, relax my eyes more, but i'm concerned this is treating it as a physical problem again? Should i hold off on this sorta stuff till I see more improvement? Quite a few questions there, but my eyes are pretty bad this week and even though i can tell theres so much good information on these forums, I can't really sit and read through it all, so apologies if these things have been covered etc Thanks!
