  • My Story

    I've been battling TMS since the 1990s. I had chronic knee and tendonitis problems as a serious cyclist back in the mid 90s. Looking back I now believe all those knee problems were TMS. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong and even having both knees scoped didn't help one bit.

    I didn't learn about TMS until 2000 when I thought I had carpal tunnel syndrone from using a mouse and playing my flute (an activity I took up when I gave up on my cycling) I discovered Dr Sarno and Dr Sopher. Both helped me over come my TMS. Then I was plagued on and off with all kinds of TMS as a runner a few years later. I discovered Monte Hueftle in 2009 and bought his first book which was very helpful and exciting. I ran my first half marathon and always seemed to get through my TMS issues which were always triggered by my running. With continued reading of Monte's first book, then his new Master Practice and also another visit with Dr Sopher in NH, I was able to get through another TMS episode. I was able to complete my first full marathon in May 2011 thanks to Monte and Dr Sopher.

    But then last summer I experienced a shin splint which I assumed was more TMS. I ran and trained for my first 50K ultra trail run. My shin was only getting worse and I ended up racing on it. I came out of my first 50K with a very bad shin and a pulled groin injury which lasted almost 3 months. So this winter and early spring I slowly got rid of my shin splint and groin injury. Then at the end of this March I developed some tendonitis symptoms on my left knee/quadricep tendon. This I do believe is TMS but it's been a long battle the last couple months. I'm having such a hard time not focusing on the physical aspect and worrying about not being able to run the Philly marathon this coming November.

      My name is Kevin. I am also from the Burlington Vermont area. I just learned that Monte's program is somewhat different than Dr. Sarnos. He feels day to day life stresses are the culprit not long term repressed emotions. Interesting.

      Currently battling TMS disguised as IT Band Syndrome. I'm passionate about marathon training and running in general.
