Hello...I'm new to this wiki and am just learning about TMS. I'm currently reading Mind Body Prescription.
I'm a recreational athlete (marathon and ultra runner). Three years ago I feel hard on my hip and developed a series of back, hip and pelvis problems. It took 1-1/2 years to resolve. I believe that my initial injury was real, but that it developed into TMS or a similar. I wasn't aware of TMS at the time, but I didn't get over the pain and back to running until I faced and got over my fear of the pain.
For the past 5 months I've been experiencing persistence foot pain and now more recently back pain. I've seen doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists and none of them have a definitive answer to my pain. In my research I've recently found and am exploring the possibility that it is TMS. I feel like this is similar to my problem 2-3 years ago. Maybe it started from a physical problem but now it is more mental than physical.
I guess my question is: I've found that the more I dwell on my pain and try to find a reason for it and a diagnosis, the worse it is. When I'm distracted or have a change of scenery it's much better. How is Dr Sarno's approach different? It seems like his method forces you to think about the pain. Is there some sort of ah ha moment where you get over the hump and thinking about the pain doesn't make it worse?
Thank you and I'm looking forward to learning more!

Forum posts can be incredibly powerful. Reading someone’s post can give you hope or even a new way of thinking about something. We’ve seen many great threads here on the wiki’s forum recently, and there are even more great ones if you look back through the 20 pages we have of older threads (which I encourage you to do!).
Of course, many people don’t think to or simply can’t make the time to sift through those archives. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a place where all of the best and most touching ideas and viewpoints were collected, written out very carefully with all necessary context and without off topic diversions? Where good ideas will continue to help people long after they are posted?
There is a new section of the wiki designed to do exactly that, called the Browsable User Pages, or simply, “User Pages.” It is a place where you can share your best ideas with the world, in a format where you control what you say and can let your personality and viewpoint shine through.

I'm not sure I understand the above post, by "HilaryN123" but it's something I'd like to know before I consider whether to begin my own user page. Any input from anyone?

My plan is to move my book list and quotes and stuff here, then my profile page will be shorter. (Is that the kind of thing you had in mind, Forest?)
I was going to have sub-pages called 'Favourite Books', 'Favourite Forum Posts', etc. But I messed one up slightly 'cos I set it up with blank templte instead of Basic template.
I deleted and tried to set up another with the same name but it wouldn't let me use the same name.
So I'm thinking each of us will have to put our user name before the sub-page names, otherwise only one person will be able to have a sub-page called 'Favourite Books' (and one other will be able to have a sub-page called 'Favorite Books' with US spelling!)
I just double-checked that was the case by trying to create another 'Favourite Books' page in a different place (under 'User Pages').
