I got rid of back pain over 10 years ago. TMS has shifted to various areas over the years (elbow, hip, feet, shoulder, neck) now I need to apply TMS to this digestion problem I have been having for over 3 years. Before my current digestion problem I had shoulder pain for about eight years that went away over night after the doctor described a painful Osteopathic procedure that he could try. I agreed to try it but he scared it away! All my problems have shifted to digestion stomach issues and have lost a lot of weight. I've had a hard time accepting that digestion (GERD or Reflux) can be caused by TMS because there isn't much writing or talking about it. There some mention in Sarno's book and also in The Great Pain Deception but I need more. Does the brain cut off oxygen to the digestion? I believe it can do anything. So why not? I have almost constant throbbing, and dull pain in the chest area. I have been checked out out thoroughly many times. I read quite a lot of the Pain Deception book yesterday and started having rib pain from a injuring 3 weeks ago that I thought was healed and cramps (charlie horse) in my feet. I think my brain may be trying to find another spot because it thinks its days are numbered! Good. It's got to go.
