That sucks man. The most hopeful things I found in deciding whether or not I had it were the following: 1) reading success stories that sounded similar to my own. In particular, the creator of the TMS wiki had a youtube video in which he laid out symptoms and a story that sounded remarkably similar to my own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=601&v=EIXuLqxmhxs Depending on your situation, you may be able to find stories that are very similar, or not. Don't necessarily be discouraged if not, as the lack of such stories readily available on the internet doesn't necessarily mean you don't have it. 2) reading all about TMS, and ultimately, making a pro con list in terms of things that make you think you do have it, and things that make you think you don't. My list is the original post here, so scroll to the top to see an example. I recommend posting your summary on this forum after you write it, and people will weigh in to help you decide. Notably, in this very post is where someone linked me the youtube video to Forest's description of his symptoms that finally convinced me that I had it. Feel free to link your post here, and I will read it and weigh in for you. Even if people don't comment, just putting all the information in one place is a really good way to think it over. Notably, I only had about equal pro and con lists to start, but in the end, it turned out that I had it. I think the fact that you're on this forum, commenting on posts means there's a pretty decent chance you have it too. 3) once I did start to think I probably had it, I went back to using the computer some. Then my symptoms started going wacky. Hurting a lot more than usual sometimes, hurting less than usual others. This after being very consistent for years. This weird variation that's not correlated with physical activity is common in recovery from TMS, and is a strong indicator that the pain is mentally caused (because otherwise why would it suddenly behave differently when all you change is your mindset?). However, don't be discouraged if this doesn't happen. Just like with the stories, if it does happen, it's an argument for, but if it doesn't, it's not necessarily an argument against. I know this sounds stacked, but I really think it's true. It's much easier to prove that it is TMS than that it isn't. Which is good, because you should really want to have TMS. If you do, it's 100% curable with very little effort, basically the ideal situation. Notably, I recently got over knee pain that I believe to be caused by TMS, that initially came on from running. Running is a repetitive activity, and I was suddenly doing it a lot in quarantine, so I think it's a perfectly legitimate physical reason for pain. However, given my history, I was suspicious that it might be pyschosomatic. So I ignored it and kept running. And it hurt more, just like it would it it were pain caused by a real physical phemenon. But I was still pretty convinced it was fake, so I continued to ignore it. It got worse. I couldn't run without limping. I was still pretty sure it was fake, but at this point I wasn't convinced it would ever go away, just cause how can you not think about this agonizing pain that happens every time you go running? Then, one day, it evaporated. Hasn't come back since. True story. I have compiled a wealth of information on TMS, and would really like to help you decide whether or not you have it, and get better if you do. It's such an easy thing to educate on, with such a potentially large effect. If you'd like more information, let me know and I can send you my whole document dump. Or I can listen to your specific story/symptoms and tell you what I think. Hope this is helpful!
