    I was explaining TMS to a friend and he asked me: "what about childness illnesses and pain, are they TMS." I didn't know how to respond as I hadn't thought about this. Any suggestions on how to respond to this?

    Actually after thinking about this I think children do make themselves sick from stress, etc. or from lack of attention from their family.

    What comes to mind immediately is the child who continually had a stomachache when it's time to go to school.
    My nephew has been suffering from migraines since a young teenager all tests negative. He is now 19 first year in college not interested in hearing that indeed his migraines are emotional (lots of drama in the house with his older brother) when he wants to stop suffering the teacher will come.
    So yes I believe children do indeed suffer from TMS

    I do too. "Sick headaches" and "childhood asthma" are two that I have known in my family.
