My most recent incidence of TMS (and when I discovered I have TMS) has been approximately two and a half months of acute upper back and neck pain. Happily after only a week and a half my pain is a lot less, although it seems to change daily amd move to additional, new and exciting locations, I'm doing nearly everything I was before the problem developed and loving it. However, a stumbling block for me mentally has been an anti-depressant medication my doctor prescribed to deal with what he thought were over-firing nerve receptors. Anti-depressants, epilepsy and some other medications are also used for nerve related issues. Although I'm on a very low dose I still need to go off them gradually. I haven't been to the doctor about getting off it because although I'm convinced I have TMS I want to go to my doctor with even less symptoms to convince him. Does that seem like I'm hedging my bets? Also, I joined an acapella group last night and went to my first rehearsal (fun but not quite Pitch Perfect). Anyway while I was there I realized I had forgotten to take the medication and my pain increased significantly. I have been telling subconcsious that the medication does not mean there is anything wrong with me. Not quite sure what to do now.
