    Hi
    I have just recently discovered about TMS, I have joined the forum and now read day 1 as advised by some helpful, understanding members (thank you)
    My thoughts on the first day is that TMS answers a lot questions that have not been answered regarding my health problems and it almost seems too good to be true that they are fixable. I am however a great believer in the mind/body connection having been through many therapies and conquering depression and anxiety as a result.
    The only issue or negative thought I have is: I'm unsure on whether it will work for me.
    I know this negative thinking isn't helpful at all but it's born from the fact that after all the therapy I still having these psychosomatic problems. A forum member has since pointed out that therapy doesn't always get rid of TMS so this has reassured me a little.
    Anyway, as I now begin my journey to a healthier, happier me.
    My health problems I believe are symptoms of TMS:
    Over active bladder
    Psoriasis
    Arthritis
    RSI
    Back pain
    Ibs
    Tinnitus
    I thank anyone who can offer advice or encouragement, I will endeavour to do that return the favour for others. ☺️

    Hi, Toby. I am 85 and have had Tinnitus since I was about 30. I just ignore it and most of the time I don't notice it.
    If I do notice it, I do some deep breathing. I've been free of back pain for some time, thanks to TMS and the SEProgram,
    but as the holidays approached I noticed my hearing is less in my right ear than in my left. I have learned in the past that anxiety and emotional stress can cause hearing problems. A few years ago I was very stressed-out and began hearing car horns even in my sleep, when there were no horns blowing.
    It went away after a while, but stress can cause hearing changes. Your other symptoms are common to TMS sufferers and I believe the SEProgram will help heal them. It takes believing 100 percent in TMS. An over active bladder is definitely a sign of emotional stress. Practice relaxation techniques.
    You know them from past healing and can find more on Google searches and in Youtube videos. (My favorite there is Guided Meditation for Detachment from Over-Thinking." Michael Seeley's voice is so calming.

    Hi Walt
    Thanks for your reply, I do believe that I have found the answer in TMS for my varied problems. The more I am reading the I can relate to it.
    The Tinnitus is causing me quite a lot of stress particularly as I always seem to notice it when it's quiet or I'm relaxing watching TV or reading. I've read so much on the internet and from the doctors that say it never goes, this obviously didn't help it I'm bring lead to believe it's permanent so it's good to hear that people have beaten it.
    It doesn't help because my mum suffers with Auditory hallucinations the doctors have said is a form of Tinnitus, this is always in the back of my mind that I might wind up like her. She hears voices talking to her and music. This scares me!
    I will have a look for Michael Seelyes meditation guide, I have listened to him before and you right about his voice.
    Thank you for helping me ☺️
