Hello – I am in urgent need of a TMS doctor somewhere in the Northeast (US). I live in Vermont and could drive 3.5 hours for a day trip to see a TMS doctor. Unfortunately Dr Sopher closed his practice a year or so ago due to a mysterious illness (non TMS related). I could drive to Boston, Montreal, upper state NY. Boston area would be ideal. Any recommendations?? I have a continuous post going on this forum about trying to finally overcome my TMS and make it to the Boston Marathon in 2014. I’ve been able to get through so many “running injuries” believing they were really just manifestations of TMS. However, my left inner shin is my “Achilles Heel”. I tried running on it 2 years ago after Dr Sopher convinced me it was TMS and OK to run. But I couldn’t stop the physical thinking as it was so painful and continued doing 28 and 30 mile runs in preparation for a 50K trail race. I couldn’t run for 3 months after that and had to give my poor shin (and groin) a break. It was really bad! After that my shin splint has still continued to plague me off and on the last year. And now it’s rearing its ugly head again and I’m in month 3 of training for the Baystate marathon in October 2013. I need to believe 100% it’s TMS or I won’t get better. But it’s extremely difficult. I started track workouts sooner than usual with a new running coach. My shin splint really got worse after doing track workouts last week. I don’t know if this is just a trigger or a real shin splint. Even Monte believes shin splints and stress fractures from running can be real injuries. I need help big time!
