Upon reading Sarno's book, I started on the TMS path 2 months ago and tried to do all the right things. I have been able to do much more with my hands and arms than before, despite my symptoms, and have been working with the TMS specialist who I like a lot. Today, I can't get rid of a thought that despite all of my progress, my symptoms (super tight fingers and hands and very limited mobility) did not get any less, I am just less fearful and therefore do more with my hands. Still, the fact that range of motion and dexterity did not improve at all, bothers me a lot. I had to sign an approval document for my employee today and my signature was not even a signature, because I can't really write anymore. I am too embarrassed (or proud) to share my unfortunate situation with anyone at work. Did not expect myself to be knocked off my feet so easily - but seeing my "signature" threw me into a full-blown depression.... Will I ever recover???? I know it is not an extinction burst - the most concerning symptoms never truly improved, they just remain flat.
