Can pain increase when you hit on a hidden issue?

    I have been following the SEP program and the sense that I am getting is that if you land on a previous "third rail issue, or taboo thought", your pain could subside. This morning I wrote on something that has been tucked away in my mind for many, many years, not even listing it on my chart of issues and I initially thought that my pain would simply melt away. It didn't. Is this phenomenon something that is normal for TMS issues or am I barking up the wrong tree? Isn't journaling about something that is a painful admission supposed to be the avenue to healing? Why should this cause more pain for me?

    This was a good article, many thanks. However, today, I continued thinking I could introduce a little bit of jogging in my walk and today I am in throbbing pain. Guess I tried too much too soon.
