Hi All, Been pretty much pain free for a couple of years, except for a minor twinge here and there, and nothing too severe for around 8 years, but this is some pain. Had been building in my lower back for a few weeks and got to spasm levels yesterday. Just took me half an hour to get from bed to the bathroom (next door). I hadn't even realised that I was under a lot of stress but now I think about it the TMS is obvious. I started a new job a few weeks ago, my 2 year old hasn't slept properly for months, my wife is also struggling with various anxiety problems, and then the country appears to be going to the dogs. I'm usually able to sort myself out pretty quickly, after a relapse, but I'm too tired to focus. I have done quite a bit of journalling already, including past and current stressors and personality traits, but I don't know where else to go from here. Currently at home with my two young girls running round and destroying the house while my wife is at work. Any suggestions very much welcome!
