    Unknowingly, I had my first bout of TMS about 25 years ago. Of course, at the time I followed the usual protocols. Boy, that orthopedic surgeon couldn't wait to get me on the table and start slicing me up. Somehow I stumbled onto Dr. Sarno and his theories. Of course, I fully recovered without being cut open and for the most part have been pain free since (three more episodes in 25 years ... not bad). I'm in the midst of one now, however, know exactly what caused it and am waiting it out. I joined this site with the intention of helping others while helping myself.

      Welcome aboard Becky! Remember the Alamo! I hear they have a nice car museum at Blackhawk. Have you been to any TMS practitioners in the Bay Area?

      Cheers,

        Hi, Tom. Yes, the museum houses some beautiful vintage cars. My husband drives his '54 (?) Chevelle there every month for a gathering. This back thing is the first incident of TMS I've had in years so have not felt the need to seek out any practitioners. Repressed anger is a biggie for me and the cause of what "ails me now." I need to get ANGRY, Tom!!! Haha. Thank you for reaching out and cheers to you as well!

    Introduction:
    I've learned a lot about TMS over the past 25 years. I had acute back pain when I was in my early thirties that I thought was going to finish me off. My pain and fear were unbearable. I don't remember how I discovered Dr. Sarno but I am go glad I did! I fully recovered, of course, and since then I've had maybe three more episodes of TMS (three in 30 years ... not too bad). I'm in the midst of one now, unfortunately, and thought some chat might help move the thing along more quickly.
    Diagnoses:
    Herniated disc, TMS
