Emotion and physical pain: It’s connected (video)
Not too long ago, I shared my story on stage about my experience with emotional traumas and physical pain. In my case, the pain locked itself in my neck and jaw causing an array of horrific neurological symptoms aka TMJ disorder.
Now, just to clarify – My TMJ symptoms initially came from a fall I had as a child. But my doctors and I strongly believe my pain and symptoms were exacerbated by years of stress and things I had not yet made peace with. In fact, whenever I feel stress, I immediately get a roaring pain in my jaw joint.
I talk a but about that in my presentation along with the aha! moment that led me down the path of healing. Have a look!
