I have been dealing with pain for twenty years. I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis and maybe irritable bowel syndrome. I have a difficult time translating all of Dr. Sarno's information about back pain to these two conditions. I do recognize my personality traits as classic TMS. My symptoms do wax and wane some or move around a bit. However, most all of my symptoms have been in my pelvis. I keep thinking something else might be wrong. It is hard not to think like that, but isn't that, too, classic TMS? I'm looking forward to working through this site.
