I definitely have TMS. I’ve had a physician confirm it. Ive been able to heal from many unpleasant symptoms over the past 2 years. Lower back pain and gluteal pain are still present. Less Intense, but still there.
After reading The material from week one - where a woman had stomach pain that had been triggered by the death of her husband, I was able to connect some dots.
I used to get uncontrollable shivers and vomit every night for about 5 years. This would happen at about 11 pm and end around 4 or 5 am. I remember telling my husband I thought I was going to die. I consulted many specialists and they could not find anything wrong with me. Eventually I healed after trying acupuncture and herbs... so I thought!
Now that I understand TMS I can connect the dots. When these symptoms were happening, I was a young mom. I had a 3 yr old and a new born. These symptoms continued for 5 years. Now that I think about it, I was angry!!!!! I was the stay at home parent. I was the care giver. I was the parent that would wake up every 2 hours to nurse a baby. I was tired! I was depressed! I was angry that I had to do it all while my husband slept. We needed his income and I could not interrupt his sleep. I was the parent that gave up a career that I loved.
The burning stomach, cold limbs, shivering body and uncomfortable vomiting resolved. Then came the back pain.
