I’m a 35 year old male with high functioning autism (Aspergers). I’m an extremely emotionally sensitive person and have always been predisposed to psychological issues like social anxiety and depression. I figure my TMS is so persistent and severe because my nervous system is so highly sensitive. I’ve been suffering from TMS symptoms for many years in the form of back pain and migraines and have been successful for the most part in making them go away. However, this last year I’ve been suffering from severe depression, anxiety, and obsessive thinking that I’ve come to identify as TMS. I realize the reason I can’t improve this time is because unlike my physical symptoms, I can’t tend to the depression and anxiety without reacting with fear and obsession. It’s seriously so bad I’d take migraines and back pain over these mental issues any day! Anyways, I’m wondering if taking anxiety medication could potentially improve my symptoms and make my brain feel more “safe” by forcing it to calm down. My brain is just so hypersensitive due to my autism that I don’t think doing therapy alone is enough. Or is it likely that taking meds will simply cause the symptom imperative and convert my symptoms into physical ones? Any thoughts?
