imaginary pains

Hello to you all!

Does anyone have imaginary pains?

I imagine a needle going through my eye and when I am stressed or through no reason at all it comes on. Also when I see a saw or a knife i imagine and 'feel' the pain going through a tooth of mine. It's always the same eye or tooth, same area of pain.

Isn't this wierd????

Can it be stopped or is there a diagnosis?

Thanks

Carl

I often feel where I would SH if I was going to SH.... if I do end up SHing its often the place where I have imagined and felt that the scar was going to be. I have also found more recently that my scars where I have SH hurt when I am stressed

Welcome Tranced. Imagination is powerful but you can use that powerful imagination to turn things the other way. Try thinking of something different but something equally powerful when these feelings start. They had us doing this at a one off group I went to once.

Intelgal - I can often feel the place that I eventually harm. That seems to be the days when I have no resistance.
