Hi.....I'm new to this site. Thanks to Forest and Matt for figuring out how to get me connected. Four months ago I suddenly developed a pain in my arm and laughed it off as sympathy pains for my son who was getting arthroscopic surgery for a torn labrum. However, the pain became more intense and moved up to my shoulder. After many doctor visits, MRI's, x-rays, nerve tests, blood tests and a cortisone shot, I decided I had TMS based on the books by Dr. Sarno that I was reading. I stopped all medications and allowed the pain to go from the left shoulder to the right shoulder. Pain in now in my wrist too. I also started psychotherapy as I truly did feel it was a mindbody connection. I visited with Dr. Rashbaum of Rusk Institute at NYU and the TMS was confirmed. I now have an appointment with a TMS therapist. And am looking forward to the drop-in chats on Saturdays.
