    Question
    I would like to ask if there is a physical test / examination i can do on my own to see if i really have TMS, or not...
    I have some moderate aches on my back mostly, and buttlocks, but i dont know if it is because of TMS or anxiety, depression, etc...
    Thank you

    Answer
    Hi, thanks for the question. The wiki provides a list of doctors who are familiar with TMS and could provide an examination that might give you insight on the nature of your issues. This can be a very important component of TMS treatment as it can give you the confidence to begin approaching your symptoms from a non-structural perspective if the physician feels it would be helpful.
