I am 16 years into my chronic pain journey with vulvodynia (first symptom) and inner thigh pain(second symptom after surgery for the first issue). I discovered TMS about a year and a half ago when someone mentioned the curable app on a Facebook group for pain I was in. I had absolutely nothing left try try after almost 15 years at that point and so I downloaded it. I did the exercises and listened to the podcasts and interviews and it all made SO much sense. Nothing had previously worked(multiple of all....medications, nerve blocks, physical therapy, acupuncture, surgery, painkillers, spinal cord stimulator..) and nothing has shown up on my MRIs (12 different ones), ultrasounds, nerve conduction studies etc. No one could give me a diagnoses or cure. Through the app I found all the books, Dr. Sarno, Dr. shubiner, Alan Gordon, Nicole sachs and, the perfectionist type A personality that I am, read them all (I'm a work in progress). The pain came at a time of stress (college, and problems with friendships) and after a lifetime of childhood adversity. I am currently seeing someone from the pain psychology center but between that and reading the majority of the books I was looking for more and found this program. I do feel this is TMS. However, as it's been a year a half since I learned what that was and I'm still no better. Plus, after seeing so many seemingly instant success stories, I don't doubt it's TMS but I wonder what is wrong with me that none of this is working (being hard on myself, I know, work in progress). Thanks for listening.
