Hi Sarah and everyone.
Even for me, it can be hard to really "get" how powerful our brains are. The feelings that we have of TMS are so real, because they are real. It's just that our brain can cause (and frequently do cause) strong, real symptoms.
One of the hallmarks of TMS are symptoms that tend to come and go. When that happens as we've seen with Sarah, you can be sure that it's TMS. The pain of a broken arm or damaged nerve doesn't come and go!
So, the dizziness and vertigo that has come and gone and come back again is clearly TMS. No one should be surprised or upset when TMS symptoms come back. We should expect it, as the brain usually takes some time to turn them off. But the neural pathways in the brain are learned and not forgotten, so it's common for them to be re-activated. And we usually don't know exactly what reactivated them. Don't work too hard to try to figure that out. Often, it's just the brain doing it's TMS thing.
It happens to all of us, including me!!
Just limit fear, know that it's TMS, work on the usual exercises to calm the brain and things will get better.
