Is there anyone out there with TMS who is a competitive cyclist or some other athlete? I am an avid cyclist and have been for 30 years. I commute, ride group rides and race. I love it. I've had minor back pain for the past 16 years, but in the last 9 months it has gotten worse. I'm not sure why, but it is driving me crazy. I cannot cycle at the level I want to. I have been doing the education program and am about 2 weeks into it. So far it has been up and down - better days and not so god days. I still ride and train but I wondering how possible it is going to be ride seveal thousand miles this year and to ride (race) at a high level. I've love to talk to a competitve athlete who has been down this road and gotten out of the grip of TMS.
