    "There are so many things little and big that are tms, I wouldn't have time to write about all of them" Dr. Sarno
    Step #1 is to see a physician to rule out anything serious. Preferably a TMS physician for an objective opinion. Serious things like cancer, infection, trauma and fracture need to be ruled out or treated.
