I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in the summer, after several years developing pains in my arms, legs and back. I read The MindBody Condition a couple of weeks ago and completely 'got it', so wanted to learn more in order to get better. I came across the TMS wiki site last week and started the structured education program on Saturday. Almost immediately, all my symptoms - including IBS - became worse, and have been since. Even though I am fully commited to the program and Dr Sarno's theory, I am still fearful that I might stay like this (in a worse state than before), if the program doesn't work for me. (I'm not one of the typical personality types, nor have I had any major traumas, and I'm worried I won't be able to get to the bottom of the true reason(s) for my TMS).
