Hello All! I am having less back pain the last couple of weeks my only problem is that I will be going along with my day and BAM I feel this severe shocking like pain in my back and down my leg. It takes my breath away and I feel sick to my stomach. What is that? It only last a few seconds but sends me into a sleepless night or a panic attack that my back is about to go. Why do we get these "twinges of pain" from out of nowhere? It is hard for me to process that it is TMS. Since it happening again late last night my left side is weak and I am worried this morning. I hate those twinges but I don't know what to do when they happen. I can usually feel my back tighten with my emotions but these hit me hard because they come on so fast. I know I have been conditioned over the years to believe it is a structural problem but it just gets me down when it happens. I feel like I am having a great pain free day and then I get these little twinges that send me back to square 1. Please help if anyone has had these and what you did to overcome them. Thank you so much.
