I posted earlier; but basically been having non-stop acid reflux and gastritis after a deep massage/adjustment for what a doctor thought was a hiatal hernia. However, CT scan shows no hernia but gastritis/inflammation in the abdomen; testing showed no h.pylori infection, but still having really bad symptoms since. Can gastritis/inflammation with no apparent structural/bacteria cause be TMS?

Also, per my subject line - the thing that's hardest for me to shake is these symptoms started after I had a deep massage/adjustment in my abdomen. Can TMS latch on to certain "procedures" as causes?

Have you read any of the Good Doctor's books?



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."

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthuisam."
Sir Winston Churchill


"If it ends with "itis" or "algia" or "syndrome" and doctors can't figure out what causes it, then it might be TMS." Dave the Mod



John Sarno, MD

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

"...there are so many things little and big that are tms, I wouldn't have time to write about all of them": Told to icelikeaninja by Dr. Sarno

i had gastritis as an equivalent of TMS. At one point when I did not treat it appropriately (psychological) it developed into a Gastric ulcer and put me in the hospital.

I see it as definitely a mindbody situation and it sounds like you are handling it well. My 2 cents is that you should continue to keep your doctor involved to make sure it doesn't escalate. I occasionally will still use acid blockers while I get a hold of what the true cause it

Less activated, more regulated and more resilient.
