Does seeing a TMS doctor really help? I have been at this for a year now. There has been improvement but at times I wonder if my actual pain levels have improved at all. My belief is not 100% and despite reading a number of Sarno and other TMS books I cannot get there. Consciously I accept it, but with the slightest thing I begin thinking about physical causes. Although I have had some times in the last year when I forgot about pain entirely (or almost entirely) for a week or so, in the last month it has been bothering me every day, sometimes all day. For the last six months or so I have seen no improvement, with periods of time where the pain recedes and then weeks when it comes back. There is a TMS doctor within a few hours of me, who seems quite good. He offers a very intense treatment of 90 minute appointment with followup lectures. He studied with Sarno and was treated by him also. However, this is also very expensive, and I don't want to pay so much unless I really think it will succeed. I realize that people who have been completely cured probably aren't normally hanging out here unless they are working as therapists, but does anyone have the experience where visiting a TMS doctor was what they needed to finally reach total confidence in the diagnosis and get rid of the pain?
