    Hi Everyone

    I am interested in peoples experience with TMS symptoms and how quickly or intensely they began, if you can remember?

    I am still unsure how much of my problem is TMS, as I do have some obvious physical stuff going on too. My problem is with my voice, and although I had some tension in my throat on and off for years, it was not like what I have now. But within a few weeks, it got exponentially worse to the point where I could barely talk and was in intense pain.

    I'd be interested to hear what other people's experiences have been

    Hi robodelfy,
    My onset was rather slow, but had distinct "steps up" in symptoms. Reading many of these posts here, I would say slow increase in pain and very rapid onset of pain are both common. I would not let your experience put you off the TMS diagnosis based on this question in your mind.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah I just thought it might be interesting to see what other had been through. It is sometimes hard to pin poi t when chronic pain begins!
