    Hurt my hands in a massage 11 months ag0; n0 broken bones
    Same thing happened 2 days ag0; slammed my hands hard into my floor killing bugs

    Seems like my hands never recovered from either incident--pain, weaknesses, nerve damaged, fingers mangled

    Thoughts ? Thanks !

    Pain, weaknesses, nerve damage and mangled fingers sounds way too dramatic for killing bugs on the floor. You say they are the same symptoms as before when you hurt your hands in a massage, but your hands would be well healed after 11 months with no broken bones. So I would definitely say this is TMS at play using the opportunity to draw you into preoccupation.

    The original injury was from a massage where the massuese violently pulled my hand at the end of the massage; the two recent injuries were where I slammed my hands into the floor hard
