    You'll be okay. I still get nerve pain if I feel stressed out, but I just remind myself that it's there because of stress. Usually deep breathing and just knowing that it's very temporary will make it go away in a day.

    You're very young. Aim to stop the loop of worried thinking now, at your age. You are fortunate to have found Sarno while in your early 20's. You have spared yourself a lot of pain.

    Be happy. Let yourself be young and enjoy your life. Look for ways to take your mind off of your body sensations. You got this.

    I totally agree, I still have ongoing nerve pain periods but I try to remember my nervous system reads my desire to be well as fear which in my case releases emotion by way of physical pain ( always in the same place as my original shingles pain ) . It’s a spiral Effect and it’s hard to stop.
    Recently I’ve discovered the “Wimhof” breathing technique and I believe it’s really helping in calming and resetting my nervous system. Also if you’ve stopped physical activity because of the pain don’t , try and get back into a good exercise routine.
