Hello everyone, I'm familiar with Sarno's ideas and had already read his first book on chronic pain. In my earlier posts, several months ago, I have described my symptoms in details. So here I would rather mention the core issues. I'm a 35 years old guy, suffering from extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, anxiety (and particularly health anxiety), upper back pain, chest, and shoulders pain for almost one year, yet the specialists don't know what I have. Some suspect CFS or Fibromyalgia while noting my case is not typical. I have the TMS personality and I'm struggling with a lot of frustration due to my chronic condition. Most of the repressed anger raised as a result of my chronic condition itself – I miss to the person I used to be before , and I'm not pleased with the way my parents and friend treat me. I'm trying to work on it through writing sessions and with my psychologist, with no much success. The symptoms also changed. They became a little different lately: from pain related symptoms to muscle weakness related symptoms (though still with some pain and especially stiffness in the upper back and shoulders). Specifically, I feel some general progression in my condition as my breathing became more difficult, I have swallowing problems (not something serious, just it feels like the food is hardly going down through my esophagus), I feel cramps in certain limbs or muscle twitching from time to time, and I cannot raise my arms for more than several seconds. It is hard for me to lift objects as well. I may also have the Carpel syndrome in my right hand – I could not lean on it at all, cause it hearts (or weak?).. I did many lab tests and scans and suppose to do another EMG test in the next month, on behalf of my Neurologist. For now she assumes it is "only" fibromyalgia but still sent me to more tests to rule out more serious conditions. The thing is that I'm afraid of some terrible muscle illnesses (ALS, Pompe, MG, Myositis and more) as the source of my symptoms. Sarno said that we have to rule out serious conditions first, but these diseases are usually diagnosed clinically after long long time, and as a result of elimination of many other conditions.. This is a long and debilitating process.. In the meanwhile I cannot take this possibility out of my head, and this makes my symptoms worst. It is not, however, a structural abnormality that freaks me out. It is rather the ongoing weakness of my muscles that represent, in my mind, certain serious diseases. This is something less discussed here than pain related "abnormailities", so I would like to consult with you about it. Could progression in muscle weakness could be psychosomatic or as part of TMS? How can I stop worrying about that and be sure that this is TMS related? Of-course, If I would feel better for more than just few hours or so, it could be a sign for me that this is Tms. However, the more my condition becomes worst the less faith I have in the possibility of Tms. Is there is any relevant success story or a specific tool for my condition?
