i believe at that point in my life I had already weaned myself off all meds. When I had physical pain and the doctors couldnt give me an answer to what caused it I read a book by Dr. John Sarno called healing back pain: the mind body connection and another one I forget what it was . Well both of those books led me to Dr Howard Schubiner's work on the mind body connection. He actually has a book out called "unlearning your pain." the book will educate you on how the mind can cause chronic physical pain, then it turns into a workbook. I accredit dr sarno and mostly dr schubiners program for helping me overcome several pains that I had been living with for years. It may sound like quackery to alot of people especially when they here something like "its all in your head" but the books will show you how it is in your head. The pain is real, very real but the cause may be mind related. I really wished I was better with words to give you a better description. DR sarno coined it TMS. Tension Myositis Syndrome. You could google it and find some good info on it. If anyone ever tells you that the mind cant cause physical symptoms then ask them why do we blush when we are embaressed? Thats an emotion causing a physical symptom. Dr Sarno mentions anxiety and OCD in his books also.
I completely understand the feeling of forgetting how to walk properly. My obsession caused that also.
If you have seen a doctor and he has ruled out any cause for this then I would say it is safe to start approaching this as an obsession or symptom of anxiety. I think you will find that with time and once you lose the fearful reaction you have to the obsession that the symptoms will improve and then the obsession will go away.
Its just tough getting to that point where your just like, " ahhh f*$% it!"
i have also challenged obsessions and fears and come out on top by asking it for more. "Is that all you got?" telling the anxiety to give me its worst. I have said for many years that anxiety is like a bully. You have to take a stand at some point and tell it to bring it on. You may get knocked on your butt some days but you get back up and do it again. Once you take the fear away then its just a thought. A bully finds pleasure in torturing the person who fears him, who runs from him. They dont like it when you fight back. I hope this helps you in some way. Best wishes to you SSG
