TMS is a peculiar subject; the problem seems to only affect a small group of people and therefore the condition is quite under the radar. With this, I've found there is a lack of solid information regarding how to cure TMS and how to tell whether you truly have it. I personally came across the idea of TMS 3 years ago when I first began experiencing chronic pain. The TMS personality type fit me exactly; I am a very high anxiety person whose perfectionistic to the core, I suffer from IBS and OCD, I try to be nice even if I do not want to, etc. I believed with all my heart that TMS was my problem and I approached my chronic pain as though it were the result of psychological problems. The 3 years that I took this approach made my condition much much worse. In reality my problem was all of my muscles had become shortened and knotted up, my posture was terrible and my muscles were not properly built [I have weaknesses in certain ones]. Because I continued to wholeheartedly believe that I had TMS and did not approach the problem physically (the TMS approach to recovery says to not treat the problem physically) I just got worse and worse. I've now arrived at this point; I stretch every single day and work on strengthening exercises for around 3 hours. It's taken about 2 months but I'm finally seeing some progress; not surprising seeing as it's 3 years of damage I'm trying to come back from. Had I taken this approach instead of the TMS approach long ago I would have been recovered so much quicker; I honestly to some degree regret finding out about TMS. The purpose of this post is not to degrade the practice of curing TMS or disregard the notions behind the condition. It's clear that curing TMS has worked for many people, and it may very well work for you. My point is if you feel like TMS is your problem you should first make absolutely sure you do not have anything physically wrong; if you do have a physical problem and take the TMS approach you will simply make it worse. If any you are on your road to recovery then I wish you the best of luck; whether you cure yourself of TMS or something else.
