Hello: My lower back pain has been an ongoing issue for years. I've been to chiropractor, neurosurgeon, orthopedist, had an MRI which indicates L5/S1 herniation / bulging disc. Also tried PT and acupuncture. I read Healing Back Pain the same day I started a round of prednisone and the next day felt 95% better and attributed it to Dr Sarno's book. After the prednisone prescription ended the pain returned so even though I related strongly to the book I "dismissed" it and remained skeptical. I then saw Dr. Raushbaum and he said I have TMS. I'm almost done with the book the Divided Mind and today I started Day 1 of the structured 42 day program. I hope it works for me the pain is very bad. Would like to hear from anybody else who can relate to this. Thanks.
