I definitely have TMS. I’ve had a physician confirm it. Ive been able to heal from many unpleasant symptoms over the past 2 years. Lower back pain and gluteal pain are still present. Less Intense, but still there.

After reading The material from week one - where a woman had stomach pain that had been triggered by the death of her husband, I was able to connect some dots. 

I used to get uncontrollable shivers and vomit every night for about 5 years. This would happen at about 11 pm and end around 4 or 5 am. I remember telling my husband I thought I was going to die. I consulted many specialists and they could not find anything wrong with me. Eventually I healed after trying acupuncture and herbs... so I thought! 

Now that I understand TMS I can connect the dots. When these symptoms were happening, I was a young mom. I had a 3 yr old and a new born. These symptoms continued for 5 years. Now that I think about it, I was angry!!!!! I was the stay at home parent. I was the care giver. I was the parent that would wake up every 2 hours to nurse a baby. I was tired! I was depressed! I was angry that I had to do it all while my husband slept. We needed his income and I could not interrupt his sleep. I was the parent that gave up a career that I loved. 

The burning stomach, cold limbs, shivering body and uncomfortable vomiting resolved. Then came the back pain.

Yes, our brains very frequently substitute one symptom for another, as it keeps trying to scare us or alert us, depending on how you look at it.

If there are currently some issues and emotions that you need to deal with, you can do that, as described in the program.

If not, then you just need to stop worrying about the pain; stop thinking that it's some kind of structural problem. It's just another manifestation of your brain and not important. As you take that attitude, you will start to feel better. It may take time so be patient, but be persistent in reclaiming your life from the pain.

Let us help you along the way.

Best, Howard
