Hi All, I have been on and off this forum for 3 or 4 years and it definitely has helped me through a couple tough spots. I self-identify as a TMS personality and preach this approach when I see it in friends and family members. However when odd symptoms sometimes pop up with me, I sometimes have a hard time seeing it as TMS. I had night sweats a couple months ago that were eased by Ambien. Presently I'm having digestive issues (new to me) including change in bowel habits and constant gurgling, rumbling in my stomach which is abnormal for me. Low level belly pain. After a couple weeks I worried about an infection and broke down and called my Doctor. He elevated it to a Gastroenterologist. Now I'm on the medical treadmill. So far, blood work is unspectacular and stool samples are normal, but he has ordered a colonoscopy for me next week. I'm still experiencing these symptoms, but they are not getting better or worse. It has been 4 or 5 weeks from onset and I'm not eating normally, lost several pounds and fear pattern has set in causing sleep problems. I have had some work related stress just prior to onset. I know the TMS tenet is to have all the medical work done and if results are normal, then assume TMS, but a colonoscopy is pretty intense and expensive (insurance only covers a portion), so I'm really fighting whether to go through with it or just assume TMS? Thoughts?
