Unread message counter gone crazy

I have an HTC Imagio and every so often I will send a message to someone and it will mistakenly send it to myself. When it does this, it creates an unread message in my message counter but there are no unread messages. I also have unread/unsent messages in my Outbox that do not exist either.

I want to throw my phone against a wall because it's telling me I have 7 unread messages in my Inbox and I do not. I've tried taking out the battery, powering down the phone randomly, making sure the messages are being sent to someone other than myself - basically everything outside of resetting my phone which I don't want to do.

Has anyone had this problem before and if so, how did you fix it?
