Hey guys, Great to see such an enthusiastic and helpful community here About 12 years ago, I dropped some heavy gym weights being an idiot trying to lift too much at home alone. I didn't break or snap anything and do not recall strong pain (just some discomfort for a couple of weeks afterwards). Then when I tried to lift weights again 1 year later (I'm a bit of a skinny bugger by the way!) I got mild to moderate level delayed onset pain in my forearm. Then fast forward about 7 years without much trouble(avoided weights) soon after a v.stressful relationship breakup, I ended up with, in the same arm... very unpleasant pain in my hand, elbow, and underarm area. Mainly as delayed onset after certain activities but it soon became a pretty nasty chronic ache. It really got me down as I not longer felt comfortable to do things I love such as surfing. Then I found a good chronic pain doc who isolated my issue to my right latissimus dorsi. It was referring the pain from some decent sized trigger points. Anyway to cut a long story short his treatments (lots of prolotherapy & TP injections) helped quite well but the trigger points still just keep coming back (unless I self massage them down again & take it easy). I recently developed sciatic pain down my leg too, with some twitching muscles in my butt and calf. Perhaps my constant massaging forced the TMS pain to find a backup plan. After some qualified advice from a no-nonsense work mate I decided to give Sarno's theories a go (since 1 week ago). So far I feel positive but still have pain (& trigger points). I know it could take weeks though. I have done some reading of Sarno's books and realise I need to repudiate the physical (amongst other things). But does anyone else have experience eliminating pesky trigger points using TMS theory? That would be very encouraging. My personality does fit the TMS susceptible type by the way. Any advice gratefully received. Thanks!
