    So I’m pretty sure dr Sarno says as long as nothing is structurally wrong it’s TMS. Also he believes that herniated disc’s do not cause pain. So is a herniated disc not considered a structural problem? which one is it?

    It's not a problem in the sense that a herniated disc does not correlate with pain or other symptoms. It's simply a "normal abnormality " as Dr. Sarno put it. Herniated discs are incidental findings (not problems) and the medical world has historically linked causality of herniations to pain. There are numerous studies debunking this as a spurious correlation. "Correlation is not causality'.
