I recently had a fascinating discussion with "Eddie" (name withheld for privacy reasons). His wife suffered from the symptoms of a long list of physical ailments UNTIL she developed dementia and could no longer remember the Specific Events in her life that were the likely cause of her symptoms. Once the memories left, so did the symptoms. Here is how he tells it.
"Over the years, my wife has been diagnosed with the following - Emphasema, Asthma, COPD, Osteoporosis, Endimetriosis, Diverticulitis, IBS, Anurism, Frozen Shoulder, Curvature of the Spine and all the time with severe back pain. Subsequent tests and examinations showed that she had NONE of those conditions, though she suffered with the back pain and those other symptoms for several years. Which brings me to her Dementia. She was diagnosed a few years back and is now in a nursing home in long term care. At this moment in time she has no back pain or any of her other symptoms. "
