I'm a TMS person and also a runner. I am currently battling a TMS symptomwhich traditional medicine would probably diagnos as quadriceps tendonitis. I've been dealing with it since the very end of this March. I think at this point I just need help convincing myself this is indeed TMS and I'm not going to make it worse by continuing my training. Here is my history below. Any words of wisdom would be hugely appreciated. I'm so grateful I have found this site. I read Enrique's account of his battle with his Achilles TMS and it was very helpful. I just need to apply the same principles but it is sometimes easier said than done! My history of TMS: I've been battling TMS since the 1990s. I had chronic knee tendonitis problems as a serious cyclist back in the mid 90s. Looking back I now believe all those knee problems were TMS. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong and even having both knees scoped didn't help one bit. I was actually a serious racer and put a ton of pressure on myself which probably brought on the TMS. I didn't learn about TMS until 2000 when I thought I had carpal tunnel syndrone from using a computer mouse and playing my flute (an activity I took up when I gave up on my cycling) I discovered Dr Sarno and Dr Sopher. Both helped me over come my TMS. Then I was plagued on and off with all kinds of TMS as a runner a few years later. I discovered Monte Hueftle in 2009 and bought his first book which was very helpful and exciting. I ran my first half marathon and always seemed to get through any minor TMS issues which were always triggered by my running. With continued reading of Monte's first book, then his new Master Practice and also another visit with Dr Sopher in NH, I was able to get through another TMS episode. I was then able to train and complete my first full marathon in May 2011 thanks to Monte and Dr Sopher. But then last summer I experienced a shin splint which I assumed was more TMS. I ran and trained for my first 50K ultra trail run. My shin was only getting worse and I ended up racing on it. I believed it was TMS and tried to overcome the pain but it wouldn't get better. I still decided to do the race. I came out of my first 50K with a very bad shin and a pulled groin injury which lasted almost 3 months. So this winter and early spring I slowly got rid of my shin splint and groin injury. Then at the end of this March I developed some tendonitis symptoms on my left knee/quadricep tendon. This I do believe is TMS like my bike racing days, but it's been a long battle the last couple months. I'm having such a hard time not focusing on the physical aspect and worrying about not being able to run the Philly marathon this coming November. I had to give up the Boston Marathon due to my shin and groin injury and not enough time to train. So it really means a lot to me to get over my new TMS and focus on my running which I love so much.
