When I was a teenager,  I used to lock myself in the bathroom, and beat my arms legs and head. It was so bad I ended up getting nerve damage. I now cannot hold a pencil and use it, it just shakes. and I get migraines, and black out. I feel really bad for doing this.  I feel really guilty for doing this.

I used to cut my wrists. It was a way of dealing with all the pain and bringing it to a place where I could control it. You are doing something similar. You need to talk to someone about the root causes of the pain and find another way to deal with it.
