I don't have much time, so my Story will be a bit short, I will tell more if you're interested, but right now i feel like i'm "obliged" to post my story, as reading others helped me a lot. Onset of pain : 2012: Neck. I was tough and didn't listen my body a lot, so I kept going with my sports and so on. Don't know how this happened. Maybe a bike fall 4-6 month before. (ha ha ha !) 2013 : Neck and arm. Stopped Sport. Passed a MRI. Found something (Of course !!!) 2014 : Back pain + Sciatica Building a IKEA bed, plus some work at home MRI : "slightly" positive (ha ha ha !) Tried the TMS approach, but i'm too much scientific for it to work. I did agree with most of the theory, but the lack of real scientific studies, plus the remaining doubt linked with any theory in a scientific mind made me think "why not, that's interesting and "maybe" the real cause of my pain. I did embrass the inflammation theory, and started a no gluten diet, while triying and reading TMS stuffs. I had multiple sh*ts to set in my life. My father died very suddenly 8 months before the onset of pain. I was 35, and no girlfriend, and no children. I was feeling like getting an old bachelor. The company where I work is a mess. This summer I met someone. She's nice. ;-) Stopped the diet, because too complicated not to drink beer ;-) And didn't care about my back, stopped using pillows in my bed. Etc. I'm pain-free since september, regarding my back. (For the ones that are into Psycho stuff, my backpain started while getting a new bed, and I remember saying to me "You don't share it very often, buddy") So no more sciatica, no more back pain. I do have very mild paresthesia while driving, but I think it's a learned behavior. I don't care at all. I'm 100% convinced it will vanished. My back does hurt a bitwhen standing a long time at bar or meetings, but it did before. So thank you! It was indeed TMS. I may really hurt myself at the begining, but the pain did not vanished when I cured. The solution is really for me, TO NOT GIVE A F*CK. Thing that I can't do for my neck at the moment. I still feel the pain, parestehesia sometimes, have crisis. The crisis do not last very long (2-3 days comparing to multiple weeks), and my neck hates the cold. I guess I have to quit my job! ;-) (And guess what, I have new symptoms! Psoriasis, mild panic attack, etc!) Knowing it's just my mind searching new ways is cool. Thanks again, and I'll say it for myself, but : If your pain is not that severe If it changes over time, with days without it If the pain vanishes during exercices, but is more severe after (1 day+) If the MRI are not crystal clear It's not physical, it's a pain created or prolonged by your mind!
