    im just curious as what non pain symptoms of TMS anyone has? very curious as the majority of the focus goes on pain but i would say there is equally an ammount of people with symptoms that arent related to pain

    Anxiety and depression are fairly common ones. Dry eyes comes up a bit too.

    The brain can create a whole multitude of symptoms. The more you look for them the more you will find them, so beware. Stevos book The Great Pain Deception has a whole lists of them. Fear is the driver behind them all, if you have tms your body is OK, no need to look for more symptoms.

    my dry eyes are painful! Depression and Anxiety is painful as well. I don't think there are any NON painful tms symptoms.

    Oh man. Here goes. In chronological order of appearance

    -Panic attacks
    -Health anxiety
    -Bowel related symptoms

    That's over 5 years. My pain symptoms appeared through that. Everything gets better, or worse, at the same time. It's worth noting that many of these have rotated out. I no longer have health anxiety, depression, fatigue, hyperacusis, panic attacks, though they were all a part of daily life just a few years back (as in, an all-encompassing obsession, for the most part).

    For me it's :
    -Allergic rhinitis
    -Panic Attacks
    -And sometimes, when I'm stressed, the skin on my hands peels off

    Lately, my back as been getting better so the rhinitis and my skin hands as been getting worse (but I don't mind those)

    Hair loss... Some people say it is just stress or vitamin deficiency. I have seen discussios about it here and some people don't accept it as TMS.
    I have had it since I was 18. Did all possible blood tests you can imagine. My iron is always seen as the culprit, and I have been taking it everyday for a long time, with no changes in the symptoms. I had really bad episodes over these almost 22 years, some times over 6 months per year. It f. up my self steem. Right now, I am going thru another episode... I worry I am going to get really ugly and not feminine... People just think it is vanity but the emotional pain that comes with it just puts me on my knees... After I had the back pain relapse two weeks ago and got better after one week, my hair loss increased largely. Anyone else has it and thinks it could be TMS-related?

    - Anxiety
    - internal tremor/crawly feeling under skin
    - twitches
    - tongue feels tingly/occasional difficulty speaking (or so it seems)
    - skin patches that are very sensitive/some pain even to the lightest touch
    - insomnia big-time
    - occasional proctalgia fugax
    - occasional myoclonic jerks

    If I could get rid of the darn twitching my anxiety would drop by prob 50-75%.

    I occasionally have sinus congestion. I recognize it as TMS, ignore it and within 30-60 minutes it is gone.
    I have also had a migraine aura a few times, but again I recognize it as TMS, and it never progresses to the actual headache and is gone in 10-15 minutes.
