migraines with aura

    hello, I just wanted to check in on something. I have used the work of Dr. Sarno many times to help with my back pain and ankle pain. I was wondering if people think that TMS could also be the cause of migraines with auras. I am just getting over one and when I looked into the cause it seems that there is a vasoconstriction in the brain causing the migraine- which would be the exact thing causing orthopedic pain (lack of blood flow to the tissues) by TMS.

    I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced migraines with auras, and if that makes sense that it would be the same principle.

    thank you so much

    Oh my, yes and yes and yes. I have had them, and some of my children have them. One of mine saw an internist who said that he believes that just about all headaches are stress-related, and that is a big acknowledgment from a western medical doctor. He doesn't use the TMS terminology, but it's the same idea. I have a number of MBS books, and the doctors/TMS therapists who wrote them all agree that migraines and headaches in general are a mindbody symptom. A variation on a theme. TMS equivalents. Dr. Sarno I believe is the one who says that he could "talk" himself out of a migraine as the aura started by focusing on his emotional state and anger. In fact, my daughter recently had a migraine with an aura that remained for a week or so after the headache left. She was freaked out. I did some research and found that this happens sometimes to people. I told her to hang in there and tolerate it as best she could and that it would go away and to keep focusing on her emotions. And it did after a week or so. If it happens again, the prolonged aura, I'm guessing she will be annoyed but less afraid and will know that it will go away. I bet if it happens it will take even less time.
