Earlier today I read this Q&A article on the wiki and it really resonated with me. I thought it might be helpful to some other people, so I decided to post it here. To check out the full page go to http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/Q&A:_My_..._Will_it_take_a_longer_time_to_get_rid_of_it? . I really liked the reasons Dr. Schubiner gave on how people can get better from TMS. The question is: My pain started 42 years ago ... Is it at all likely that the fact that my pain started so long ago will mean that it will take longer to get rid of it?
