All odds are in favor of the TMS diagnosis. Still, from an emotional perspective, I fear for my health and feel that my body is not strong. For the last 15 years, I have had episodes of alopecia, insomnia, urinary problems, fever, back pain, to mention a few symptons. And my psychological profile matches Sarno`s description of a TMSer. Since last January I started feeling back pain again. Even though I am aware it is part of the TMS strategy, I can`t help but being afraid of hurting myself due to a hearniated disc diagnosed, even though it is not a severe case.
