Hi all, I'm back. On the bright side, the pain in my back has left me alone for over a year! (This is an amazing miracle-level thing! The other day a colleague asked, "Won't [situation x] really hurt your back?" I smiled and promised it wouldn't.) And now my foot hurts. I thought it was plantar fasciitis (with my strong back I resumed my running hobby,) and I'm being treated for plantar fasciitis, but it's not going away as the doctor predicted. AND it doesn't hurt when it should--for example, the pain isn't worse first thing in the morning and it doesn't start a run and then ease up but develops over the course of a run or several hours after the run is over. Plus, over the last six months, my father-in-law's health has been a sadness and a stress upon my family. I know the key to unlearning my back pain was knowing that I wasn't actually causing injury by living my life. How does one proceed with such a strategy when it MIGHT be a structural injury, but you're starting to suspect it might be TMS? I don't live very near a TMS doctor, so seeing the closest option involves a day off work for the travel and logistics. Any advice would be welcome!
