Hi, My story can be found in the Structured Program Section. I have a specific question regarding TMS and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I am so far dealing well with leg pain, shoulder and back pain, but the one thing I'm truly scared of is CTS. I have CTS like symptoms in both hands, symptoms Id love to ignore, however something doesn't add up for me. CTS is known to gradually cause atrophy of the thumb muscle, known to be irreversible. TMS causes oxygen deprivation but as Dr Sarno says, the condition is harmless. The fear of thumb atrophy happening to me prevents me from keeping this pain out of my mind. Any input? Daniel.
