Trouble accepting TMS for myself

    Since a couple of months i read a lot about TMS/mind-body syndrom, stress that cause physical pain.
    I can accept that this can be a diagnosis for a lot of people, but i really have some trouble accepting this for myself.
    I have chronic neck tension, upper back tension, tension in my face/head/jaws and i'm also diagnosed with vulvodynia.

    But a physiotherapist and a couple of chiropractors told me i have a bad posture (like forward head) and that one of my hips is higher than the other, so i have a significant leg length difference..

    So, with these diagnoses in mind, i have a hard time believing it's 100% TMS and that i can heal 100%..

    Are there some members here who can give me some courage?? That theu have had the same diagnoses and still healed completely?

    Thank you!

    I listened to it yesterday!! I found it really helpfull!
    Doing less is indeed a challenge for TMS personalities..

    Learning to trust the process and believing that the pain WILL leave is a huge problem!!

    Thanks for responding!

    @yogigirl In the same link given by @KevinMartilloViner you can find podcast done with steve ozanich (https://audioboom.com/posts/6546970-014-steve-ozanich (Audioboom / 014 - Steve Ozanich)). Somewhere in there, he mentions that doing anything to heal is adding fuel to fire. The answer lies in seeing the problem properly and accepting it. The ability to understand the problem on its own leads to answer. It seems understanding the situation is more important than ending the pain.
