Need some help and advice for diagnosis

    Background. I was diagnosed with pelvic pain syndrome in 2019 and felt like my life was over. It was horrible. I stewed in it for almost 2 years and wanted to leave this world.

    I discovered Dr Sarno and it changed my life. I was very quick in understanding TMS and was completely better in 45 days. I got my life back.

    problem is, I recently felt a “lump” in my penis shaft and panicked. I still have some PTSD from the pelvic pain a few years ago.

    I went to the dr. And they said it was Peyronie’s disease. It’s scar tissue inside your penis that con be progressive and cause pain. Ultimately it can cause bending and other issues in your genitals. I know Dr schubiner said scar tissue is TMS and should not cause pain. I agree. Most guys have progressive issues with Peyronie’s disease because the medical community offers zero help or treatment. So these poor men hang out in sad forums trying to “figure it out”. Just like pelvic pain syndrome.

    I am struggling with this, guys. I’m trying to keep a cool head but it’s very hard because the dr actually found something. It’s been painful.

    Since it’s not necessary “nothing” like before. I have no blueprint this time. I reverted back to forums and supplement research which reminds me of panicked research before I discovered Sarno.

    I know people see bad things in scans and dr Sarno said it was not causing the pain. Like the moment I discovered this module in my penis brought on fear and pain followed. Before that, I didn’t feel any pain.

    here is where I need help: do I follow the TMS method or do I try to fix it? I don’t know what to do and I can’t be in this dark place again.

    I used a lifetime of energy up a few years ago when I had the CPPS. I got that figured out. Just not strong enough to do this again if it’s not TMS.

    If anyone can offer advice, please reach out.

    So, you don’t have any symptoms of pain or sensation, just something the Dr. thinks it could be?
    Sounds to me like you have a choice to follow the path of fear or not. You have proven you are plenty strong to use your tms knowledge to tackle your fears. If you need help, build a support team: the folks here, a psychologist or tms coach if you need one.. and you can always contact a TMS Dr. and talk to them about the medical side of things.
    This website has two free programs (don’t know if you used one in the past) to guide you through TMS work again.
    Claire Weekes books can help you with the anxiety.

    I was in a bad bad place last night. I appreciate the message. Thank you. I’m wrapping my head around the situation.

    there is pain. It’s lessening. I didn’t have ANY pain until I discovered a lump. Immediately after that, pain followed. I know what’s going on now.

    My personality is the blueprint for TMS. When I get manic or fearful with this stuff I can’t get my head out of the way. Usually my wife has to snap me out of it.

    Thank you for the reply.

    It can't hurt to try some new resources or do a program. A decent goal is to teach your conscious brain to think psychologically much more quickly the next time symptoms occur - and they will! The TMS brain mechanism is not something that can be cured, but it can be managed, and the more tools you develop, the easier it becomes. Let us know what you've done in the past, we can give you some ideas for things you might try now.
