    From the time I was a teenager until about a couple of years ago, I suffered from lower back pain, upper back pain, neck pain, TMJ, allergies, hives, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and anxiety, but the worst was the back pain. Sometimes my pain was so severe I'd be on the floor for a week. Other times my pain would be less debilitating but it was still there. I tried everything short of drugs and surgery: regular chiropractic treatments with probably half a dozen different chiropractors and acupuncturists and I even paid a lot for a series of classes with a posture specialist. I used different types of mattresses, pillows, special seat cushions, back braces, foot rests and would constantly adjust and readjust my work station and try different stretching exercises. Everything either helped only a little bit at first or did not help at all. I basically resigned myself to living the rest of my life in pain.
    As for my childhood, things were tough for me growing up in Chicago and in Danville, CA where I was bullied a lot for being different (i.e., Asian). My parents had high expectations for me, I can be very hard on myself, and I always try to please others.
    About two years ago, I stumbled across this blog (http://www.pgbovine.net/back-pain-guest-article.htm (Philip Guo - My Back Pain Story (guest article))). It had the title "My Back Pain Story" and that was how I was introduced to the work of Dr. John Sarno. I would say I'm about 95%+ recovered and getting better everyday. The worst of it is certainly over.

    Introduction:
    I am recovering from back pain brought on by TMS, but have been suffering from occasional bouts of foot pain and would like to talk with others about how to keep TMS at bay.
