I am curious if there is anyone on here who has successfully recovered or improved their TMS condition and then gone back to a medical practitioner who previously told you your pain was due to some XYZ structural problem? It just occurred to me that here is a typical scenario on here (let's take back pain as an example): you have some back pain. You go to a doc. He tells you you have a herniated disc or a spondylolisthesis or something else and that is the reason. You obsess about it. It gets worse. You go to months and years of more doctors, physical therapy, chiropractors, acupuncture, etc. none of it helps. Eventually you learn of the mind-body connection and are able to cure yourself simply by calming your nervous system down, reading Dr Sarno, etc. But very likely you never go back to those original practitioners and tell them what happened (why spend more money, nothing in our medical system is cheap). So the original back doctors just happily go along telling people their normal abnormalities are the problem and they need surgery. They never really get the feedback that they were basically wrong.
