After going through Dr. Sarno's book I have many questions, one of which is: He states that knowing about TMS will relieve your pain/symptoms. What I'm wondering is, if you have underlying emotional problems (which results in unconcious rage) than wouldn't the TMS return if you don't fix those emotional problems [if that's what caused it in the first place] ?? My thoughts after the book are along the lines of "if this issues caused the pain, then I need to work double time to fix them. If only I had been more successful at accomplishing the things that were important to me and my values, I wouldn't be experiencing this right now."
