Dr. Sarno and other TMS doctors repeat in various places the importance of having a physical examination from a TMS doctor to ensure that there's actually no structural abnormality. This is both a good precaution in case there actually is an abnormality, and they say it's a prerequisite to fully accepting the diagnosis. Is it really necessary? I get worried every time I read that. If it really is that important, I should go find an available doctor right away. If it's not necessary, I wish they'd stop stressing me out by saying it is. Are there any TMS doctors in Wisconsin, or even Chicago or the Twin Cities? I've looked at the tmswiki's list of TMS doctors for Wisconsin, and I searched online for all of those docs, but the list seems to be quite out of date and I couldn't find any of them online.
