I was reading a post between a few members on here about their migrane headaches and this stuck out to me... "Too much time in our heads" This might not be the initial trigger of my TMS but it is for sure the prolongment of my tension feelings and vision issues in my head. Even though I have been medically cleared and know that the issue is all mental I still can not stop symptom checking to see if my head feels 'normal' and if my vision is normal. Before my heads issues I constantly checked to see if my leg was in pain and was able to tell the mind the leg was fine after I started running 2 miles again. For some reason I can't find a way to convince my mind that my vision is fine so says the optometrist and my head can only be from stress. I believe it but can stop the symptom checking...I am spending too much time in my head about my head. Anyone have any good strategies I can use? When i watch TV I check my vision and head...when I drive I check. I am always checking for it. Also, am I to now focus on what my be the cuase of my OCD tendencies and once that is brought to the surface I might be able to break the cycle of symptom checking? The only thing I can think of is how much of a perfectionist I can be at times....and with my head and vision I won't be happy until my vision and head feel perfect like before this all started. I can't relax and just roll with the feelings until my body heals itself. Two other things I do that I just realized have increased with this TMS has been an increase in biting my finger nails and I play with my ear lobe when nervous. I am constantly rubbing my ear now all day.
