Do any of you go to a primary care doctor for annual physicals? I have one coming up in over a month, and I am already obsessing about it. In the midst of a run of TMS-equivalent symptoms. I know it's TMS because of the sequence. The brain is truly a trickster. A lot has changed for me since I stumbled into John Sarno's theory. Last year I was still having MRIs and getting cortisone shots. How have you engaged your non-TMS physicians around your symptoms? I really do not want any invasive medical tests for something I am pretty sure is transient. I am constantly "what if-ing." I know this is TMS but what if I'm actually sick? Should I have an endoscopy, colonoscopy etc etc? How do you know when it's time for medical intervention? It occurred to me yesterday that I can't imagine what it would be like to live without worrying and overthinking. It was an a-ha realization: I have always put excess energy into worry; it had to convert to TMS. I'm working my way out of it, but my brain keeps throwing new worries in my path. The TMS last hurrah!
