Official diagnosis?

    Although I am pretty sure my symptoms (lower back pain, herniated disk l4-l5 and l-5 S1) are TMS because of my personality and stress factors, I would still like to get an official diagnosis. I live in Houston, where we have lots of medical dr's but no TMS dr's or therapists. Where would you recommend I go for an official diagnosis? Thanks!

    How far is Fort Worth from you? You can call it a vacation:

    John Sklar, MD
    (Physician)

    Dr. John Sklar practices Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation in Fort Worth, Texas. He has been treating TMS for 20 years. Here he reviews "The Presence Process" by Michael Brown. "In it is a very good description of the cause/source of our unconscious conflicts (the one's that result in TMS). Then a 10 week process is described which will begin to allow the unconscious material to be integrated/digested. I believe that it describes the single best TMS treatment protocol on the planet (and I am not one to throw about such words lightly). At any rate you should be aware of this material. I have showed it to DR. Sarno who was initially quite skeptical (after I described it to him) but later was quite impressed. He believes it is great description of the source of repressed emotions (one of "the best" that he has seen)." (Source)

    Thank you Tennis Tom! Does anybody have experience with Dr. Sklar? I would like to visit him but the reviews online for him are not very good. Of course they may be skewed because of his views not being in line with "tradional" medicine in the US. Thanks!
