Today's Featured Success Story
Overcame back pain using the TMS approach
First noticed a weird back pain after coming back from vacation. Next time I felt this it was a few months later--coming home from vacation again. Had it badly returning from vacation AGAIN later. Around Thanksgiving I was driving and got acute pain in my butt cheek and actually cried when I got home. Not able to go to work any longer; too much pain. Dr. John Sarno was being mentioned to me here and there by friends. Got to thinking that I suppose emotions could be causing some of this. Decided to go see Dr. Sarno. A few days later I could stand up longer. Within 1.5 weeks I felt a miraculous difference. Pain soon disappeared completely. Read the full success story

Dr. Sarno hosted lectures for his new clients as a way to help educate them about TMS. With a similar mindset, we host special webinars with TMS practitioners and authors to help people with TMS learn more about the condition and identify the emotional sources behind their symptoms, hear how others successfully overcame their symptoms, and learn skills to help become pain-free.

We’ve been there. We can help.
The PPD/TMS Peer Network (PTPN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009. We seek to relieve suffering from Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) by raising awareness, providing information based on scientific evidence, facilitating expression of a wide variety of perspectives, and giving individual support to people with TMS. Like many others, we suffered from terrible pain and other symptoms for many years before learning about this approach. All of the members of our organization suffered from TMS at some point in their lives, and the majority of these members consider themselves to have recovered from chronic pain and experience little to no pain.
This Wiki was the PTPN's first project. The TMS Wiki currently hosts 588 different articles on TMS.
