Hi everyone. I wanted to ask if anyone here can understand why I'd get mild TMS symptoms from working out. Could they be caused by a small part of me believing this is relieving my chronic pain? Despite the fact I have overcome said pain using TMS techniques? Spoiler: Context for my TMS I've been regularly working out since I started seeing a personal trainer early into my case of chronic pain (RSI), back when I still believed the problem was physical. This was in mid-late 2019. Long story short I discovered TMS in early 2020 and over the course of the year, I felt less need to be paying for my personal trainer as I treated my RSI using TMS. I stopped working with the PT near the end of 2020. To this day, I've been doing many of the same workouts/exercises that I was with my personal trainer. Some of my TMS symptoms tend to flare-up when doing exercises like push-ups, especially a rash on my hands. This rash mainly occurs on my middle finger (right hand) and the space between my other fingers. It does not occur when I am finding my own exercise to do, such as bush walks, cycling and swimming. In addition I'm hesitant to stop doing exercise altogether because of other benefits I've found, such as body image, self-confidence and an overall better mood. Thank you to anyone who reads this.
