Re: can stress manefest inside you for ages then cuase you problems later?
TMS, Tension Myositis Syndrome. This is a state your mind reaches from stress that turns to repressed rage. It is accumulated anger, stress and anxiety. Dr. John E. Sarno's theory for pain and many other illnesses and physical disorders. The mind, that smart body controlling mechanism, protects itself from the hurt by giving you something physical to distract you from the mental pain. Commonly backache and similiar painful conditions as well as TMS equivilants, autoimmune disorders, etc,. Read " Healing Back Pain" by Sarno. It does not refer only to back pain but also other TMS conditions (back pain is one of the most prevalent). Or, his latest book, "The Mindbody Prescription". Current medical approaces concentrate only on the physical aspects of conditions and laboratory results. The body is a much more sophisticated mechanism since the mind controls and regulates the system.
