I am struggling with the tms diagnosis because of the MRI and what the doctor said about needing surgery. I 100 percent want to believe in tms. I can see the logic behind Sarno and desperately want to embrace the concepts and get better. However, my brain also tends to think that when I stand up and put pressure on my sciatic nerve it causes pain. That seems very logical. Stand up get pain. Sit down little or no pain. I know there are many others with more severe diagnosis and pain that have gotten better with this type of treatment so I am hopeful. However, I still have this battle in my head. My chiropractor did diagnose me with tms 8 months ago and that is helpful. I just wonder if he is wrong???
