Hi all. I have found much relief from studying TMS. I'm a "believer" you could say -- but my mother would be a hard sell.

She is nearing 60 years old and has awful bunions on both feet. Does anyone here have experience with bunions and treating them with TMS? She may be a lost cause as far as accepting a mindbody syndrome, but it hurts to watch her in so much pain. Just Googling bunions and seeing how bad they could get makes me really scared for her.

Are bunions one of those conditions that don't fall under TMS because we're talking about a bony bump and joints jutting out, not muscles/nerves? Or would it still qualify?

Has anyone come across any TMS-related literature on this? Dis Sarno ever write about them in his books?

I know this is not a typical post for this forum, but any help is welcome. Will happily delete if this is deemed an inappropriate post.

Do a search here, there's a 'SEARCH' button for it in the upper right corner. You'll find a few citations for the word, it will be hi-lited in yellow. Also check out the TMS Wiki.

Hi - I have bunions, they used to hurt. They are still there, have not hurt for years now. I used to get a lot of foot and leg pains that were tms.

Hi Al, thanks for helping out JF and her mother with your own personal real TMS science! I haven't heard much about bunions/TMS but I was hoping someone here had--and there you go!
Cheers mate & Hoppy Holidaze, I owe you a beer next time I'm up your way,



Some of my favorite excerpts from _THE DIVIDED MIND_ :


"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional." Author Unknown

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” – Plato

"Happy People Are Happy Putters." Frank Nobilo, Golf Analyst

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." Mark Twain and Balto

"The hot-dog is the noblest of dogs; it feeds the hand that bites it." Dr. Laurence Johnston Peter

"...the human emotional system was not designed to endure the mental rigors of a tennis match." Dr. Allen Fox

"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise" - Thomas Gray

"All my friends in Los Angeles are the sensitive type. They all have like all the diseases like Chronic Fatigue, Epstien Barr, Fibromyalgia. Like all the diseases where the only symptoms seem to be you had a really crappy childhood and at the prospect of full time work ya feel kinda achy and tired."

Dr. Sarno is now retired, if you call this number you will be referred to his associate Dr. Rashbaum.
