    Thanks for all the detailed information and the permission. I had high inflammation (IgA antibodies) but of course no specialist diagnosis so the whole thing could have been TMS + psychosomatic indigestion/loss of appetite and severe IBS (TMS equivalents). I wouldn't advocate stopping meds either, certainly not abruptly. In this hypothetical study, you could keep patients on meds, use TMS info/journalling/psychotherapy treatment and only if there was a significant reduction in measured inflammation and symptoms (i.e. remission/cure) could the experimenters begin to very gradually wean the subjects off of their medications. In other words, something similar to what you're doing. I'm just throwing ideas around. I'm glad the medications have worked for you and I'm sure you know what is best for you. If you're interested, I'll send you a link when my book is out.

    @JanAtheCPA I always appreciate your take on things. I had a stressful week last week and came down with what I thought was a cold, maybe allergies, not sure. But I started to panic thinking that now I'm going to have rhinitis symptoms along with other traditional pain symptoms and since they're TMS I shouldn't take allergy meds or anything to treat the symptoms. Since Sarno says you shouldn't treat the symptoms, but the root cause.

    Then I saw you mention about how you aren't a Sarno purist and you should treat them as an individual as you see fit. Made me realize we don't need to always go by the book. Took some Claritin today and just focused on relaxing and not fixating and already feel a bit better.
