Because of the classic predisposing personality traits, I have had many episodes of various manifestations of TMS over many years. I seem to be prone to some of the “odder” TMS manifestations. Prior to now, the most intense was a severe burning sensation in the sacrum and buttocks area when sitting, starting about 10 years ago. This lasted 3 years until I sort of accidentally learned about Dr. Sarno, and 6 weeks later I was cured, without recurrence of that symptom to this day. I have had a variety of other more typical, manageable, and fairly brief manifestations over the years. But now I have developed the sudden onset of obvious and fairly constant slurring of speech (dysarthria), which has been very frightening, especially since this is mentioned little in the TMS literature. I guess I’m not 100% sure that it’s TMS, but after negative neurologic testing, and realizing the stressful situation during which it started, and my learning from before, I’m betting it is. It’s frustrating and embarrassing in my public position as a physician and hospital leader. I’m starting the Structured Educational Program with day 1 today, as well as reading from Dr. Sarno’s books every day. I’m hoping in a few weeks to be cured again. This website was not present 10 years ago that I know of, and I certainly appreciate the enormous amount of work you all have done.
