It has been more than 6 months with my chronic back pain. Before 6 months i was a happy bachelor. Pretty happy in my life, far from anger and anxiety and used to think there is nothing that i am worried about. But actually i got to know that i am very much afraid to diseases. Even if doctor says there is nothing wrong i will be stressed out and will be thinking entire day and night about my diseas . I got MRI done due to my fear ( no doctor suggested for MRI) and it showed disk space between L4-L5 is reduced but this problem is since my childhood. I visited 4-5 doctors and all suggested me to do low back/core strengthening exercise. But every time i start exercise my pain increase. I was very much astonished if L4-L5 disc space reduction was root cause of my pain i should get it since my childhood. Now i started thinking that most of the pain is in my mind as i was able to jog/walk. I never got pain while sleeping. I only used to get pain while sitting, mostly in office. Last week i discovered Dr Sarno's book which clearly explained about mind body interaction and i was fully convinced i have TMS. I resumed all my activities,started sitting on sofa, Playing cricket,lifting light weights in GYM. It has been 1 week. I am very happy to resume my activity. It's like i got 80% of my life back but at the same time i am feeling that after resuming the activities i pain is increasing every day. Today when i woke up i was pain free and i went to play cricket. After i returned i am seeing significant increase in pain. I am ignoring the pain but i am little bit discouraged and unhappy. I have tried everything and TMS is my last hope. I am pretty much sure my pain is nothing but TMS.
