I saw that Dr. Howard Schubiner in Unlearning Your Pain does not classify asthma as a psychogenic or MBS condition, but rather as a tissue-issue. However, I also notice that Dr. Sarno does think there is a link between TMS pain and asthma; that they are in effect equivalents. Does anyone out there on the Wiki find that asthma and TMS are related either physically or psychologically with examples from their own experience to confirm that? I do notice that my asthma, which had been in remission during high school, came back when I was taking 19 units in junior college, running on the track team, working a job and playing and practicing in a rock band. I remember too that I started having an unexplained rash at the same time I started having nocturnal asthma attacks. I think I was also under tremendous pressure at the time from my parents to over achieve and also when I was elected to Alpha Gamma Sigma honor society for life. Didn't seem to have any TMS pain back then, but perhaps asthma functioned psychologically in much the same way? Of interest too is that now that I am over 60 my asthmatic symptoms have gone way, way down. My allergist says this is something that specialists have noted too. I notice too how Sarno says TMS peaks between 35 and 60 and Schubiner says 44 and 65. Makes you suspect there must be some biochemical cycle that underlies both TMS and asthma/allergies.
