I am a 50 yo female. I was dx with Interstitial Cystits in 2009. I got a UTI that never left! I've been to many MD had many treatments without improvement. I stumbled on TMS by accident. This is the first time I've had hope that I will be rid of this pain in years. I've been reading Schubiner's book, Unlearn Your Pain. He focuses on past childhood events, but I think my sx are brought on by events in my adult life. I served 20 years in the military and have a stressful job three kids ect. I think TMS makes sense. My sx are always worse in certain situations,mostly work. Well thanks for reading!
