Most experiences described on this website and in related readings address chronic pain. While I have had a number of conditions over the years involving chronic pain, my current health concerns involve asthma-like and gastric symptoms. I have seen a series of specialists that have done a number of scans finding some anomalies which could explain this (mild hiatal hernia causing indigestion, reflux, and asthma), but none of the treatments have provided relief, only side-effects. The last specialist advised returning to normal exercise and daily activities and slowly dropping all the medications. My symptoms come and go with no classic asthma patterns, but greatly interfere with sleeping, travel, and normal life activities. I am very suspicious that the source of my symptoms is actually psychological and I see myself in the patterns and personality traits described here and in related readings. Yet difficulty breathing, which is terrifying and a potentially fatal symptom, is not described beyond a mention that asthma and allergies are TMS substitutes. Not sure I am in the right place and certainly my symptoms have not mitigated despite my readings and participation in the program for 10 days.
