  • My Story

    Born and educated in Germany. High School plus training in mechanical engineering. Emigrated to Canada after completion of education. Personality: Highly responsible, conscientious perfectionist, self driven, ambitious, achieving and controlling. Present status: Part time musician, playing banjo in a Jazz Band. Retired as Mech. Engineer in 2000. Issues: Back and leg pain. No significant physical causes as thoroughly investigated. Intermittent back pain episodes started over 30 years ago, increasing in intensity and frequency after retirement 13 years ago. After surgery for blocked bowels one year ago, leg pain joined the back pain with increased intensity. I am well familiar with Dr. Sarnos work and read all his books. I consider myself a typical TMS candidate according to my behaviors. Oddly my symptoms are not improved by heat, but rather worsened. I also do not exhibit the tender points / areas described in Sarnos literature. In 2003 I was examined by Dr. Schechter in LA. His diagnosis was unspecific as I might have TMS. I have worked with the Sarno method for years with little success and also tried unsuccessfully various other methods such as EFT, the Dr. Yuen method and others. I do not have any doubts or problems accepting that only a TMS like mind body treatment will improve my condition. By joining this forum I hope to find help and support for my condition.
