Let him know that the offer remains open. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Emotions and Pain: My area of interest is in the way our emotions, our feelings will manifest themselves as physical pain. A common way this happens is tms - tension myositis syndrome. Pain is real in patients with tms, but the cascade of pain begins from an emotion - not an injury. A nice place to start to learn about this is the tms wiki.
