  • My Story

    I read that TMS is behind neuralgia; I am counting on it, as the option of increasing anti- convulsants that make me stupid, dopey, or worse, of getting brain surgery - are dismal prospects. All this started out of the blue some six years ago; this summer was absolutely brutal. The last neurologist I saw, after 9 hours in Emergency when the neuralgia went totally out of control, told me about the grim future I faced. I was feeling quite sorry for myself, no longer able to function in my business with the very high dose of meds, passing clients on to others, and thinking I needed to face this "serious" condition.

    Three weeks ago, a friend suggested I read Sarno's latest book before considering surgery. I have since also read The Mind Body Prescription, listened to Sarno's interview, and now have found this Forum.

    Have only read 1 success story in The Divided Brain, back chapter - a woman who has been diagnosed and suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have been diagnosed with a similar, though rarer type of neuralgia. I am so relieved to find out that TMS is the cause of this excruciating pain, and not any damage or compression of the nerve....now to convince my Unconscious to stop this strategy.

    If anyone out there have success stories to share related to neuralgia, I'd love to hear them.

    Thanks for all of you who have created this Forum.

      Working through Unlearn Your Pain, Day 5...very in-depth journaling and daily mindfulness meditation on the CD.

      Reading Unlearn Your Pain by Dr. Schubiner and am preparing to deep dive into his 28-day program...

      Readying for Christmas as I read, Unlearn Your Pain"; interesting juxtaposition!

      Reading about Symptom Substitution and recognize that my unconscious is desperately trying to fool me with new pain symptoms; not convinced

      Newish TMS-strategy in the past couple of days...really sore/sensitive knees & legs-used to think this was fibromyalgia ... Not! It's TMS.

      I am very flexible and so was surprised this morning when stretching to feel acute shoulder pain...and immediately suspected TMS; got stern!

      Really appreciate today's reading by Monte advocating practical ways to learn how to live in the present: start with 5 mins at daily tasks.

      Today is week three of this program. Have been thinking about the fear of relapse; appreciate Dr. Schubiner's blog on not fearing the fear.

      Reading about TMS and rashes and allergies, which I had for 15 years triggered by rough anniversary of emotional abandonment.

      Today's question from Dr. Howard Schubiner is a good one for me to explore, "why might my mind prefer to hang on to these symptoms?

      Discovering how long this strategy has been operating in my life, and how oblivious I have been, up until recently, to its effects. No more!

      Appreciating the comments today in Lesson 22 about how understanding and accepting TMS/PPD changes my outlook of what is really going on.

      Gently shared the concept of TMS with another neuralgia sufferer; she is opting for meds and surgery and the promise of being pain-free.

      Seeing long established patterns of promising myself to play more and work less, and enjoy life. High time I listened to my inner prompting

      Journaling in-depth is a walk down memory lane..the good, the bad and the ugly. And learning to accept and love myself through it all.

      Started a list of people I haven't thought about (some for almost 50 years) and am glad to remember. And some others, not so much...
