I am definitely thinking psychologically, but can't seem to beat this excruciating back and hip pain. It's driving me insane. I discovered TMS by accident in mid February, and started journaling at the beginning of March. I had a minor success at the start of September. One Wednesday evening I was on the phone to my brother talking about soccer, his two young children and when we would be seeing each other next. I thought nothing more of the call and went to bed a couple of hours later. When I woke up the next morning, the pain had spread to the top of the back of my thighs and I was crying in pain just trying to tie my shoe laces. I eventually figured out on the Friday afternoon that it was caused by TMS and was actually because I have been insanely jealous of my brother as he's a straight A student and has had three or four long-term relationships (while I've had none, and have struggled to get B and C grades). Within five hours of speaking to a senior manager of my office about this for about five minutes, the pain in the back of my thighs disappeared within five hours. I have now read about a guy called Monte Hueftle, and wondered if anyone else had completed his programme??
