Since I am still awaiting a lot of test results for possible neuropathy and autoimmune disease on top of neuralgia I have started seeing a TMS therapist PRIOR to learning I may have some more serious/complicated conditions. I like her a lot but I have to be TMS all the way and therapy i focused strictly on that. Then I scheduled an appmt with a clinical psychologist. She believes I need to deal with and heal from all the recent stressors (meaning past 2 years) in addition to reducing the fear and anxiety related to my pain. With the TMS therapist I like that she is solely focused on exercises and techniques however I also would like to be able to work thru and process the major life stressor's from the past. I think that this may be more helpful now until I get to the point where all my medical tests r done and I have worked on confronting the stressors. Because exercises and techniques r good but maybe not at this time. Any thoughts - do many people with TMS seek a TMS therapist only or is it also common to seek general therapists while continuing to read TMS books and do the exercises adjunctively? Thanks!
