    Hi all,

    This will only be of interest to those residing in the UK, so I apologise in advance for this.

    I watched the documentary "The Trainer & The Racehorse: Frankel's Legend" on Saturday evening and diagnosed Sir Henry Cecil with what I suspect was TMS.

    He lost his identical twin brother, and the following day he fell off his horse and came down with crippling back pain. The narrator states that he went to several doctors/done several tests but the cause of his chronic pain could not be found. I assume that he had all the usual contemporary imaging tests which showed that he unusually for his age had a normal spine.

    Speaking about it, his wife claims that she feels his pain was caused by his brother's death. This got me really interested.

    Anyway, later in the show there was an interview with Cecil about how he stays positive and he kept on saying don't think about the negative thoughts, put them to the back of your mind etc.

    I don't like talking about his health really, because he is no longer with us, and I respect him hugely for what he has achieved in his field.

    For those in the UK, you can watch the documentary on Channel 4 on demand (4od).

    I hope this is of interest to some of you.

    Best regards,

    Hi, Scott. I'm in America, in Chicago, but I found your post about Sir Henry Cecil to be very interesting because it does seem like his back pain is caused by TMS, emotional from the death of his twin brother. Is he still alive? If so, I hope someone tells him about Dr. Sarno and TMS. The documentary should get other people thinking about psychological reasons for their pain, which TMS teaches us.
