    I have a long history of depression, both in my family and with my own health as well. Last year I had a very bad breakdown and was on full disability for six months. In August I returned to work full-time and recovered m0st of my functioning. I've been doing pretty well, but I began to experience nausea and diarrhea right after starting on my current meds. I have also had a very strong stomach and have never had digestion issues.

    I should mention that I have been diagnosed as Bipolar II and the three different medications to control symptoms: Depakote 500 x 2, Effexor 300MG and Remoran 45MG.

    Is it possible my condition is related to TMS? I would appreciate any insights you have into this.

    Thanks very much.

    The short answer is YES. Depression is an AFFECTIVE (emotional) form of TMS. A few years back, after a rough patch, I was DX'ed with "clinical depression". Once I wrapped my head around it being another form of TMS distraction, I was able to work my way out of it and return to functioning. Depression is a protective TMS psychological defense mechanism.
