    Last year I was able to overcome my back pain by reading Dr. Sarno's "Healing Back Pain" book and doing the structured program over 42 days. Near the close of completing the program, I began developing a runny nose out of no where. It got so bad in the days that passed, I began having nose bleeds. I often have to clear my throat of phlegm daily due to the heavy mucus flowing through my respiratory system. I visited my doctors and used natural remedies to no avail. Since last year, I've had this problem. I'm currently set in stone believing this is another manifestation of TMS attempting to grasp my attention. Nothing works to stop it and I notice the only times of the day I get the worse flares up of a runny nose is when I awake and when I shower. I've never had allergies so, I'm very skeptical in dealing with this random onset of an irritated nose. I'm 3 days in re-reading TMS literature and books while telling my brain i'm dealing with TMS and to STOP IT!... has anyone else had this issue after overcoming TMS induced back pain?

    a few years ago, after reading 'the divided mind", i overcame life-long migraines. at the time, i also had what felt like a sinus issue, but didn't tie it to tms. i have gone to all kinds of doctors, had sinus scopes and xrays (normal), herbs, homeopathics, on and on and NOTHING seems to alleviate it. it has gotten better over the years, but is hanging on relentlessly, just enough to aggravate the hell out of me. all day long, clearing my throat...mucus won't go up and out the nose, nor down...stuck right at a place that cannot be easily coughed out...almost like it is teasing me, hiding in a pocket that is hard to reach. wakes me up and keeps me awake at night. i am rereading all the tms information i can get my hands on right now, including coming to this site to compare notes with others experiencing this. i must mention, too, that i have had severe ibs (another rabbit hole with docs and such) for a few years and with all my current reading seem to have overcome that for which i am IMMENSELY grateful. this post nasal drip is the last of the contenders for tms treatment i believe. it is tenacious. it is a source of tremendous rage in me sometimes and i journal about it. i am very willing to look at the psychological cause(s) but i get no answers and am frustrated at times to the point of fight-flight, tho i can't escape from my body. no matter if i am friends with my brain/body or yell at it in frustration, neither seems to make a difference.
