I'm in the middle of a complete relapse with my low back/sciatic pain caused by TMS. I had made a full recovery after discovering Dr. Sarno's books, but for whatever reason I have now relapsed. I have an appt scheduled with a TMS Psychotherapist but that is 2 weeks from now and I'm in so much pain. Day and night and no position or anything can provide me relief. I broke down yesterday and took some Bayer Aspirin to dull the pain so that I could concentrate on my journaling and also read some chapters over again in my TMS books. It provided me with enough pain relief to do that and I was also able to sleep a full night. Do you think by taking the pain medicine I have set back my recovery?
