Hi all, Apparently, I'm not entirely certain my problems are all psychological, even with my new (although I didn't have time to ask my many many questions) diagnosis of TMS. Here's my situation: my issue is lower back. On a good day, it's stiff and achy. On a bad day, it also has pain spasms and sort of buckles (although that's usually used in reference to knees, but it seems like it fails to hold me up and I sort of dip down like with a buckled knee) when I stand up or sometimes going up or down stairs or similar motions. I've been having mostly "good" days. The weird thing is that actions that seem to make me worse (I know TMS theory says it's emotions/thoughts) make me worse LATER, which really seems like it's a physical issue. For example, I don't hurt when I'm sitting, I hurt when I try to get up after sitting for an extended time. It doesn't happen if I'm walking, sit for ten seconds, and then stand. Only if I've been sitting. And it almost always surprises me. Today I ran (only in one-minute intervals, but still something I haven't done in a long time) and now, 12 hours later, I'm not just sore but getting the bad spasms and buckling. I stopped running not primarily because it hurt while I was doing it but because I just couldn't take the pain the next day. Is this conditioning, or should I go back and grill the doctor about it?
