Hello, My name is Jeremy and I'm 19 years old. This is my first post and I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing so I'll just jump right in. I suppose that the reason I'm writing this is to ask If it's possible for younger people to develop TMS. I've read all of Dr. Sarno's books and I recall maybe one or two cases where he mentions teens but for the most part, he doesn't say whether it's common in teens (or at least I don't remember him saying that). My symptoms started developing as soon as I turned 16 and have gotten progressively worse ever since. I'm now in a state of dull, achy, chronic pain. As far as the books go, I saw myself on every page. I've experienced almost everything that Dr. Sarno states is characteristic of TMS. I really believed that I was suffering from TMS since all my x-rays, MRI's and other medical tests came back "clean" and the multiple doctors that I've gone to have been perplexed as to where the pain is coming from. So the only logical conclusion would be TMS then, right? I'm just not so sure anymore. I've been practicing Dr. Sarno's methods of educating one's self on the theory and I'm really trying everything I can to get rid of this awful syndrome but I'm not seeing results. I guess the major questions I have are: A) Can TMS manifest in teens and B) How long can it really take to see results or improvement in symptoms. Thank you.
