Migraines - pretty much gone and when they do come they last a few hours rather than a few days Daily head tension - down from a constant 6 to an intermittent 2/3 RSI in bot hands -pretty much gone Remaining... constant lightheaded foggy head and slightly blurred vision New symptom - intense anxiety on waking that last a few hours of the day. Pretty much just a tight feeling in my chest and a slightly sick feeling in my stomach The constant nature of these particular symptoms is so hard to challenge, I am aware of them all day every day I admit that there is a lot of fear involved, they have been constant for about 5 years now (on and off for 10 years in total) and have made life pretty difficult (understatement) I feel that discovering TMS has been a good thing in many ways, but has also brought a huge pressure to get rid of my symptoms, when before I was just getting on with life, still hating and fearing my symptoms but not necessarily feeling under any pressure to heal because I didn't think it was possible. What is holding me back right now is this - If I can manage my headaches why does this not help my lightheadedness too? Instead, it makes it worse. I was told years ago by a chinese doctor that I hyperventilate and therefore need to try breathing exercises daily. I didn't take it seriously but that little nugget, and other advice here on the forum around deep breathing is kind of confusing me and making it hard to think truly psychological and not physical. I can't help thinking if I do breathing exercises I am doing them to correct a physical problem with my breathing... I know the power of TMS work now, but I cannot seem to apply it to this particular symptom. And yes, I have worked with a TMS therapist which is how I made such great progress with other symptoms, but I can't afford to keep seeing one for now.
