I just experienced a flare up of pain in my back, this is only the second time in my life I’ve experienced pain in my back. I’ve experienced other TMS equivalents like wrist, shoulder, or neck pain and was able to work through those by reading the divided mind, think away your pain, the TMS wiki, journaling and meeting with a psychologist. I’m hoping this flare up is temporary and I’m using it as a reminder to get back in touch with my emotions through journaling in the evenings before bed. I also checked out healing back pain from the library and am reading it now. On page 5 Sarno says: “There is a temporary constriction of blood vessels, bringing on the symptoms, and then all returns to normal.” Does anyone know of a medical journal article or experiment where this blood vessel constriction was observed?
